Red, White and Blueberry!

When wondering what to post for the 4th of July, what came to mind? Cocktails of course! Enjoy this fabulous Blueberry Mojito recipe, courtesy of St. Joe's Bar in New Orleans (via Food & Wine Magazine) inspired by my friend Gavin who works at Sostanza in Madison Park, here in Seattle.

10 mint leaves, plus 1 mint sprig for garnish
10 blueberries
3/4 ounce Simple Syrup
1 1/2 ounces gold rum
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce chilled club soda
1 ounce chilled Sprite

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves, blueberries and Simple Syrup. Fill with ice, add the rum and lime juice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass, top with the club soda and Sprite and garnish with the mint sprig.

What could be better than that? Sweet, tart and totally patriotic! OK, maybe that is going a bit too far. Enjoy your 4th of July everyone...I'll see you Monday!
