I love this drink! I have to admit though I just couldn't make a mojito with rye whiskey so I substituted it with rum. It was wonderful. A great idea to use lemonade! This was a great recipe find! Thank you. Made near the end of ZWT4 while traveling around with my Babes!

I bought a little bottle of whiskey and finally gave this a go. I was afraid of the whiskey but with all the lemonade and the lime juice, it was really a second player. Not to mention the lime flavor. Fun garnish with the blueberries. I might try this again later with rum. Thanks. Made for ZWT4.

I used 8 blueberries. I didn't add a splash of soda water. I loved the taste and the color of it. I didn't want to take a photo but when I saw how good looking it was, I did a skewer of blueberries as a garnish. Thanks Ev. Made for the Babes of ZWT4
