This is the first mojito recipe I post on this blog and I must warn you: many will come. I work for Ron Santa Teresa, the oldest Ron de Venezuela producer, so it’s natural for me to be mixing and shaking rum-based cocktails. This is also my first post here on this blog, so I just want to tell you: mi casa es tu casa.

Garden to Bar Mixology

Purple mojito made with blueberry and lavender syrup

This is a super refreshing drink and therefore it’s perfect for these hot summer days. I found the recipe in Market Fresh Mixology – Cocktails for Every Season, a book by Bridget Albert and Mary Barranco. In fact, I bought the book for this particular recipe. And then I went out to buy organic dried lavender flowers, to make my lavender syrup.

This book came to me after a wonderful weekend in New York, where I had the opportunity to visit some of the best bars I’ve been to. There, I could see how the mixologists are working more and more with their own syrups. So, I started experimenting with vanilla, mint, and lavender. On the lavender syrup, I must say that it is simply and absolutely sublime.

A Rum that Tastes Like Rum

Lavender blueberry cocktail, aka mojito.

In this opportunity, I used Santa Teresa Claro, a rum that holds the seal Controlled Appellation of Origin Ron de Venezuela. According to Giuseppe González, who’s the mixologist at Painkiller, a trendy tiki bar in lower Manhattan, “this is a rum that tastes like rum, not vodka.”

Claro was created especially to make mojitos and daiquiris. Heavy rums give Claro its character and permanence. They also give it the aromas and flavors that make Claro the ideal rum to mix in all kinds of cocktails.
