happy friday! we have a fun weekend planned...dinner club with friends tonight, baby shower tomorrow, and perhaps the zoo on sunday. enjoy your weekend. xxo.
blueberry ginger mojitos:
to make the ginger simple syrup:
peel and grate 1/2 cup of fresh ginger and add it with 2 cups sugar and 2 cups cold water to a saucepan. bring it to a boil and stir until the sugar dissolves. turn off the heat, cover, and let steep for 15 minutes. strain and cool in the refrigerator when done.
for the mojitos:
add 2 cups fresh blueberries, 2 limes cut into wedges, and 30 fresh mint leaves to a pitcher. muddle with a wooden spoon so the blueberries are broken and the mint and lime release their juices and flavor.
when ready to serve, add 8 ounces of the simple syrup, 8 ounces of vodka, and top off with 10 ounces of club soda. give it a quick stir and then pour into glasses with ice cubes. garnish with a handful of fresh blueberries and a sprig of mint. this recipe will make 4 tall glasses.
