Make not one cocktail but a pitcher of this Mojito recipe to celebrate National Mojito Day! Ryan Yamada of Sinema Restaurant + Bar in Nashville, TN’s new summer pitcher, the Mint For Each Other, is the perfect way to celebrate the day with a group of friends.
To make your blueberry syrup, combine 1 cup of blueberries with 1/4 cup of water in a pot. Crush the blueberries and bring the mix to a simmer on low heat for 15 minutes. Strain the juice through a sieve or chinois pressing hard to extract all juices. Combine 1 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup of water in a pot and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add the blueberry juice and 1 TBSP of lemon juice and boil for 1 minute. Let the syrup cool.
In a blender, combine 12 ounces of Afrohead Briland 07, 6 ounces of your white peach puree, 4 ounces of your blueberry syrup, and 4 ounces of water. Gently pulse for 20-30 seconds.
In a pitcher combine your ice, mint leaves, and 1 pint of blueberries. Pour your cocktail mix into the pitcher, and top with Fever Tree Premium Spring Soda Water. Gently stir all ingredients together. Feel free to garnish your beverages with fresh blueberries and mint sprigs.
