Blogathon 26 – 18:30

Speaking of Nestea recipes, they were also giving out recipe booklets with all sorts of delicious snacks and bevvies. How do I know they’re delicious? We tried them, of course!

If you’re quick, you can still find blueberries at most of the markets around town, and make Blueberry Tea Mojitos for six.

1 1/2 cups of blueberries (reserve 1/2 c. for garnish)
1/4 cup mint leaves
1 lime, cut into 6 wedges
12 ice cubes for muddling (I’m impressed with the precise level of detail on these instructions!)
9 tsp sugar (if using Nestea Zero, omit the sugar)
1 1/4 cups Nestea Lemon Ice Tea or Nestea Zero Lemon Ice Tea

Extra ice for filling the glasses
Mint for garnish
Club soda or sparkling water

  • Muddle the blueberries, lime wedges, mint and sugar together until the berries are bruised
  • Add the tea and ice, shake well
  • Strain the blueberry tea mixture and divide among 6 glasses
  • Fill the glasses halfway with ice, and top with club soda/sparkling water
  • Garnish with the remaining blueberries and mint
  • Again, this was a nice drink on its own, and could only be improved with the addition of some light rum or vodka!
