Blueberry ginger mojito pitchers

  • For the ginger simple syrup
  • 70g grated fresh ginger
  • 200g granulated sugar
  • 240ml cold water
  • For the mojito
  • 150g fresh blueberries
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 20 to 24 fresh mint leaves
  • 120ml ginger simple syrup, recipe above
  • 120ml vodka
  • 150ml club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • Blueberries, for garnish
  • Mint leaves, for garnish
For the ginger simple syrup:

1) Peel and grate the ginger and add it, together with the sugar and cold water, to a saucepan. Bring it to the boil and stir until the sugar dissolves. Cover and let steep for 15 minutes.

2) Strain and cool in the refrigerator when done.

For the mojito:

1) Add the blueberries, lime wedges and fresh mint leaves to the glass (or pitcher). Mix with a wooden spoon so the blueberries are broken and the mint and lime release their juices and flavour.

2) If assembling pitchers you can cover them at this stage and leave in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

3) When ready to serve, add the simple syrup, vodka and top off with club soda. Give it a quick stir and then pour into glasses with ice cubes.

4) Garnish with a handful of fresh blueberries and a sprig of mint.

The recipe outlined above is for 2 tall glasses, but you can use the ratio to make pitchers (depending on how big your pitcher is double or quadruple the recipe).
