During our travels, we are always on the lookout for a great cocktail. This blueberry mojito recipe, inspired by the Maine Blueberry Mint Mojito from Terrace Grill, in Bar Harbor, is delicious.
What is a mojito? A mojito is a cocktail that originated in Havana, Cuba. And, is traditionally made with 5 ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water and mint. These days, there are hundreds of variations.
The mojito from Terrace Grill was made with blueberry soda. Knowing that it’s not something that we can easily get in Calgary, we did purchase some while in Maine. So, before leaving Bar Harbor, we picked up a few bottles of Old Soaker Blueberry Soda from the Atlantic Brewing Company.
Since we weren’t lucky enough to get the exact recipe, here’s our version of the Maine Blueberry Mint Mojito Recipe. Let us know what you think! So, comment below.

Typically, the mojito is made with white rum. Unfortunately we didn’t have any on hand so we opted for a darker rum and it was just as good. We chose the Rusticator Rum from Bartlett Spirits of Maine. We highly recommend it if you are able to get your hands on it.
