I am one smitten kitten. I adore Blueberry Mojitos. Are you scared of veering from the classic traditional version? I understand. This has a lovely summer freshness that makes it worth trying.

Zina’s Blueberry Mojito

  • 1 heaping handful of fresh (or frozen) blueberries
  • 3 mint leaves
  • 2 TB simple syrup
  • 3 TB lime juice
  • Club soda or Sprite
  • Bacardi Rum

Directions: Smash the blueberries and mint together using the back of a spoon. I prefer frozen blueberries because the skins are softer. Add lime juice, simple syrup, desired amount of Bacardi (shot and a half or so), stir and top off with club soda or Sprite. YUM.

This recipe is “Mama’s Medicine” after a day of creative work during the dog days of summer. The catch? Fresh mint is quite pricey. Last year I decided I’d simply plant mint & enjoy leaves as needed. I was warned by multiple people to be cautious of where I plant because mint spreads like a weed.

My seeds never materialized. Does this feel like social marketing to you? You imagine your content going viral and spreading like a weed. Still, if you cannot get your seeds to grow you’re left with just dirt. I’ve got some tried and true social gardening tips to share with you.  Pop on over for 5 Tips for Making Your Social Marketing Bloom.
