Recipe by Marla Swoffer
I recently had my first lavender mojito at a restaurant, so I went looking for a recipe, and I found something similar. The one I had used a lavender and rosewater infused simple syrup but this blueberry version is also quite good. I like that it says 0-15 mint leaves, since I actually prefer my mojitos w/o mint (more like a Caipirinha). We skipped the seltzer, doubled the lime, and used cubes instead of crushed ice.
