Happily Gluten and Dairy Free Blueberry Mojito Laura Friendly

Blueberries. Fresh, juicy and sweet, this weekend became an exploration in Berry possibility. Because summer cocktails are always a treat, I decided to play around with a Blueberry Mojito. I love the brillant berry color created by muddling the blueberries. Their sweet flavor, plus the fresh mint, made the perfect drink for a warm summer day.
