Spring is here, bringing warmer, longer days and a renewed commitment by the Naturalizer team to our fitness regimen. But as much as we love getting fit and healthy, we hate the thought of not indulging in a refreshing cocktail now and then. Enter the Blueberry Mojito Royale, a Champagne and rum-based beverage that is packed with flavor, color, and…antioxidants?! Yes, thanks to nearly half a cup of blueberries in each glass, this drink is as good for you as it is delicious. Of course, we did find it on Domesticate Me, the food blog of clean-eating advocate and cookbook author Serena Wolf, so we knew it would be a hit from the moment we laid eyes on her Instagram-ready images. Ready to sip sans guilt? Find Serena’s recipe below.
