Serving Suggestions & Tips

While heavy food might overtake the mojito’s delicate flavors, a light meal brings out the fresh mint, tart lime and sweet blueberries. Blueberry mojito mocktails pair well with cool, refreshing appetizers like spring rolls and stuffed cucumbers. For sit-down dinners, serve your mojitos with a light entrée like grilled fish or veggie pizza.

If you serve this mojito mocktail as an after-dinner treat, pair the drinks with a light dessert like tea cookies or shortbread, lemon meringue pie or fruit tarts.

For charcuterie boards, try a sharp white cheddar, feta or goat cheese to balance out the sweet blueberries. Try a spicy meat like chorizo; or opt for milder options like salami and prosciutto. Slices of orange or another citrus fruit round out the selection.

The right presentation will have your guests craving a mocktail in the middle of a hot day. There is no need to wait for 5 o’clock! Serve the mocktail in a clear glass or pitcher that showcases the real blueberries, mint leaves and clinking ice cubes, signifying the drink’s freshness. Make sure you don’t over-stir the drink: the fruit and leaves should float attractively in the water, not get crushed inside the glass.
