INGREDIENTS

120g Blueberries (crushed)

120g Blueberries (whole)

5 Kiwi’s (peeled and cut in half)

5 Kiwi’s (peeled & sliced)

Handful of mint

1¼ cup lime juice

½ cup sugar

Blue or green sugar to decorate rim of glass

1 cup of rum

1 ½ - 2 cups of sparkling water

Ice as needed

 

METHOD

Place the cut kiwis in a small food processor with the sugar and lime juice, pulse until you have coarse puree. Mix the kiwi puree with the rum, you can start by adding the lower amount and then adjust as you prepare the drink.

Gently crush the first 120g of blueberries using a muddler.

You can make the mojitos in pitcher or in individual glasses.

Moisten the rims of the glasses with a slice of lime and garnish the rims with the sugar. If you can’t find blue and/or green sugar, you can use blue/green cookie sugar sprinkles.

To make it in a pitcher, pour the kiwi puree into the pitcher, add a layer of ice, add a good amount of mint leaves and kiwi slices. Next add a few more ice cubes, and then add the crushed blueberries, some more mint leaves and whole blueberries. Top off with the sparkling water and mix gently. Taste and add more rum, sparkling water, or sugar if needed.

To make the drink in individual glasses, follow a similar process as for the pitcher, but add a few whole blueberries at the beginning. You can also add a slice of kiwi with the blueberries at the end.
