Here at The Bowgie Inn, Crantock. We love a classic Mojito. We love the taste, we love the look and we even love the word. It’s a Brazilian carnival you can sip through a straw and quite frankly nothing gets better than that.
Well…Almost nothing. In our opinion, this Blueberry Lavender Mojito pips it to the post. If a classic mojito is a Brazilian Carnival, this is a mardi gras with added glitter and kettle drums. This has extra feather bowers and more flamboyant costumes. This is a Brazilian Carnival; but better.
So without further ado… We present The Bowgie Bevvy of your dreams – The Blueberry Lavender Mojito.
It sounds posh doesn’t it? If posh is another word for lovely then it most definitely ticks all posh boxes (or should one say compartments?)
So in a suitably fancy tall glass mix the mint leaves, lavender syrup, lime and blueberries with a pinch of ground cardamom and rum. Don’t go crazy on the mixing though, less is more and the flavours will infuse naturally.
Then fill the glass with crushed ice, top with soda and stir. Think like a carnival queen and go to town on the garnish then enjoy……
