It is spring, and that means we can transition to lighter, refreshing cocktails. There's nothing better than a good mojito.

Blueberry lemon cake has always been one of my favorite desserts. It's sweet and tart in perfect balance, and I love it.

Both of these flavors remind me of spring. When the weather started warming up here in Iowa, I started craving blueberry and lemon, but in a cocktail.

The first cocktail that came to my mind was a blueberry lemon drop. This isn't a bad cocktail at all. But it just didn't sound like it would hit the spot.

I wanted something more refreshing than sweet.

So why not a mojito? They're my favorite summer cocktail. Mojitos are delicious. Blueberry and lemon both go well with mint, so I figured: Let's do this!

The first thing I had to do was to create the blueberry syrup. I have mentioned in a couple of other videos when I make fruit syrups, I like to use less sugar than others.

I just think there is enough sugar in the fruit to make up for using less sugar. Some fruits seem to have more sweetness than others.

Blueberries are less sweet than strawberries and pineapples. So I did use some more sugar than my usual recipe to get the delicate blueberry flavor to pop.

My final recipe for blueberry syrup was 12 ounces for fresh blueberries, 8 ounces of boiled water, and 8 ounces of sugar.

Just stick all of the ingredients into a blender for 15 seconds. Then run the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer and cool it in the fridge. It is that easy to make this syrup.

Once the blueberry syrup was chilled and ready, it was time to make the mojito. I started with our classic mojito recipe, but subbed the simple syrup for the blueberry one. Then I switched out the lime for lemon, because I think lime would overshadow that light blueberry flavor.

Honestly, it worked great!! There was no need to mess around with the ratios because it was exactly what I wanted.

We will be showing you in future episodes how we make syrups and other mixers we use. We have some exciting things coming up!! Just a little foreshadowing.
