Blueberry Mojitos

IMG_5728A few weeks ago, Rob and I planted a little indoor herb garden with cilantro, basil and mint so that we could have fresh ingredients on hand for some dinner recipes. The cilantro and basil are steadily growing from the seeds, but we cheated and bought a full-grown mint plant. Since it was ready to go, we put it to good use and made some blueberry mojitos last weekend. They were simple, flavorful and refreshing—perfect for a hot, summer day!
