This recipe for Huckleberry Mojito is one that we served at a wedding recently. We are located in the Northwest, where huckleberries grow wild, and the bride and groom really wanted to feature Northwest ingredients, so this is how this mojito came to be.
We serve these in beautiful 2-gallon glass dispensers with a spout, serve-yourself style. Needless to say, many people got tipsy, and in retrospect, I don’t recommend serving it like this at very large gatherings- they go down a little too easy.
If you are not familiar with wild huckleberries, this is what they look like.
The recipe makes enough for one tall drink, so feel free to double like we do at home.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we have and thanks for being here!
