Blueberry Ginger Mojitos!

I saw this on the Food Network and I knew I had to give it a try!  They were so good!  They're pretty easy too, you can muddle the ingredients right in the pitcher.  This recipe serves two but it can easily be doubled or tripled for a group.

To make these mojitos you'll need ginger simple syrup.  It's quick and easy to make.

You will need:
1/4 of a cup grated fresh ginger
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup of cold water

Peel and grate the ginger and add it, together with the sugar and cold water, to a saucepan. Bring it to the boil and stir until the sugar dissolves. Cover and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain and cool in the refrigerator when done.

Now for the Mojitos:
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 lime, cut into wedges
20 to 24 fresh mint leaves
4 ounces ginger simple syrup
4 ounces vodka
5 ounces club soda
Ice cubes
Blueberries, for garnish
Mint leaves, for garnish

Combine the blueberries, mint leaves and lime wedges in the pitcher and muddle it in there with the back of a wooden spoon. When you are ready to serve add the vodka, ginger simple syrup and club soda. Stir and pour into glasses with a couple of ice cubes. Garnish each glass with some fresh blueberries and a sprig of fresh mint.
