Each blueberry explodes during the process of making this syrup, and they’re allowed to sit and infuse for long enough that they lend this syrup its beautiful magenta hue.
2 oz rum
1 oz lime juice
.75 oz Blueberry Lavender Crescent Simples
5-6 mint leaves
Top with soda water
Make it Zero Proof: Skip the rum, or use a zero proof rum
Add your mint leaves, lime juice, and simple syrup to the bottom of a Collins glass and muddle lightly.
You don’t want to smash the mint leaves, you just want to express them.
Top with rum, ice, and soda water, then stir with a bar spoon to combine.
