BLUEBERRY LEMON AND CUCUMBER GIN MOJITOS


Ingredients
BLUEBERRY LEMON AND CUCUMBER GIN MOJITOS
  • 1.5 oz Blueberry Honey Syrup recipe to follow
  • 2 oz of gin
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 5 leaves fresh mint
  • 5 slices of cucumber
  • Soda water

OPTIONAL GARNISH
  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Sliced lemon
  • Blueberries
  • Sprig of mint
  • Edible flowers I used pansies

BLUEBERRY HONEY SYRUP
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Juice from half a lemon

Instructions
  1. If you’re making floral ice cubes, begin by sourcing your flowers, washing them and dropping them into the ice cube trays to freeze. You really can’t mess this up — so experiment with different flower place- ments within each cube and have fun with it!
  2. Start on your Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup. Add blueberries and water to a medium sauce pan over low heat. The blueberries will begin to break down quickly — help them along by pressing them with a potato masher to aid in extracting the juices. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Strain the blueberry juice into a heatproof bowl, using the potato masher press the juice through the strainer. Reserve the juice for the Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup and discard the skins.
  4. Add the blueberry juice and honey back to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and allow to thicken for 10 minutes.
