Billy's Beverages: Virgin Blueberry Mojito

1 cup of blueberry syrup
8 tables of sugar
12 sprigs of fresh mint

16 oz of ginger ale

Gather four rock glasses up and put two tables’ spoons of sugar and two mint sprigs in each glass. Then add a little ginger ale to each glass. Muddle the mint until it is in little pieces. Then fill the glass with ice and half full with blueberry syrup. Top with the remainder of the ginger ale and shake real well. Garnish with a mint sprig.

Blueberry syrup:
1 cup of blueberries
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar

In a sauce pan cook the blueberries, sugar and water until they pop and release their juices. Strain and discard the skins. Set in the refrigerator to thicken.
