Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 large handful mint, torn

Instructions

1

Throw all the ingredients together in a saucepan and place over medium heat just until the mixture boils. Remove from the heat and cool.

2

Strain the mixture (a colander lined with cheesecloth would work well here) into mason jars and store in the fridge until ready for use.

3

To make the blueberry mojito, add about two fingers of simple syrup to a small tumbler, a splash of gin, a slice of lime, and a few mint leaves. Muddle, and then top up with sparkling water.
