Here’s a Monday Mojito recipe in celebration of Labor Day! Mojitos are a refreshing drink, easy to make, and can be made non-alcoholic by replacing the rum with sprite.

For this recipe, you’ll need blueberry simple syrup, which is made by cooking blueberries (fresh or frozen), sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Then process the mixture in a blender. You can strain out the blueberry pulp, but we like to leave it in for the bright color, taste, and extra fiber.

You may want a cocktail muddler for the mint leaves, however, we just used a spoon. If you prefer to use an official cocktail muddler, we linked our favorite down below.
