Mojitos are classic Cuban drinks that are as refreshing as they are delicious. Traditionally, the recipe is a combination of lime, mint, sugar, white rum, and club soda.
Together these ingredients combine to create a fizzy magical elixir to help you conquer the hottest days of the year with a smile on your face.

Mix up a Blueberry Mojito Cocktail
Possibly some of my favorite cocktail varieties are the many mojitos with a fruit twist. Endless possibilities from strawberry, rhubarb, mango, and, my personal favorite, blueberry make up the vast array of mojitos with a twist.
Making a mojito is simple. In a tall glass muddle together white sugar, mint, and lime. Add some crushed ice, rum, and club soda. That's all there is to this simple cocktail recipe.

Sounds like a great reason to have a cocktail in the sunshine.
