During our travels, we are always on the lookout for a great cocktail. The Maine Blueberry Mint Mojito from Terrace Grill, in Bar Harbor, did not disappoint.
After having looked at the ingredients, we noticed that blueberry soda was one of the ingredients. Knowing that it’s not something that wec an easily get at home we needed to stock up. 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 Mojito Recipe.
