Ginger Blueberry Mojito
(makes 2 glasses)

For Ginger-Infused Simple Syrup:
1/4 cup grated fresh ginger
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup cold water

For the Mojito:
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 lime, cut into wedges
20 to 24 fresh mint leaves
4 ounces ginger-infused simple syrup
4 ounces spiced rum
5 ounces club soda
ice cubes
blueberries, for garnish
mint leaves, for garnish
lime wedges, for garnish


Ginger-Infused Simple Syrup:
You'll need 1/4 cup of grated fresh ginger, (we suggest you peel the whole ginger root, cut into smaller pieces, and use a food processor or blender to pulverize).

In a small pan, bring the ginger, sugar and cold water to a boil and stir until the sugar dissolves completely. Cover and let it steep for 20 minutes.

Pour the mixture through a strainer and cool in the refrigerator. Makes enough for more than a pitcher.

Place 1/2 cup of blueberries, 10-12 fresh mint leaves and a lime wedge in each glass. Muddle the ingredients by pressing it down lightly with the end of a wooden spoon and giving a gentle twist.

Add the rum, ginger-infused simple syrup and club soda. Add a couple of ice cubes and stir. Garnish each glass with some fresh blueberries, a sprig of fresh mint and a wedge of lime.
