With antimicrobial properties, the herb helps regulate gut bacteria, acting as the secret powerhouse ingredient to beat belly bloat and keep you swim suit ready.

Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants to help lower blood pressure, prevent heart disease, maintain brain function, and much more! Mix it all up with a little lime, high in calcium, folate and vitamin C, and you have yourself a refreshingly healthful cocktail to sip on those hot summer days, with this delicious recipe from Miraval Resort!

Blueberry Ginger Mojito

from Miraval Resort

1 cup blueberries

1 oz sliced ginger

10 mint leaves

Juice of 3 limes

8 oz white rum

6 oz honey syrup

2 oz champagne

With a muddler, smash the blackberries, ginger and mint in a cocktail shaker. Add the lime juice, rum and honey syrup and shake with ice then pour over more crushed iced.

Chef's Tip: Do not over muddle; this will make the herbs bitter.
