  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 tablespoons blueberries, fresh or frozen (divided)
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup lemonade
  • splash of soda water
  • 1 ounce light rum
  • 1/2 ounce dark rum
  • mint sprig for garnish
  • lime slice for garnish
Directions
In a tall 16-ounce glass, add mint leaves, lime juice and sugar; mash the ingredients with the back of a spoon or a "muddler" until fragrant. Add 2 tablespooons of the blueberries and mash until juicy.

Fill the glass three quarters with ice. Add lemonade until the glass is two-thirds full. Add splash of soda, light rum and remaining blueberries; stir. Slowly pour dark rum into the drink so it floats on top.
