Blueberry Mojito #SummerCocktails

This is the perfect summer refresher, fruity but more bitter than sweet, which is a wonderful way to quench the thirst in the heat.


We are sharing Summer Cocktails today with the Festive Foodies Group.......

Michelle of Our Crafty Cocktails invited us to share Summer Cocktails to beat the Summer Heat. Let's see what everyone served up.......




I don't know about you but when I am hot and thirsty I don't want anything too sweet.  If you agree then this cocktail is for you.  We served these up poolside on Father's Day.  Amy and I loved them.  My friend, Miss Sue?  Not so much.....she prefers a sweeter cocktail.
