Sparkling Blueberry Mojito
Have you ever heard of the term Terroir? It comes from the French word terre for "land" which is used to represent the special characteristics that the geography, geology and climate of a certain place give to a product. Take Cognacs as an example. The soil, climate and region where the grapes grow create a specific terroir for each brand of Cognac.
Enter Mountain Valley Spring Water. Their still and sparkling water is bottled from a natural spring source in Hot Springs, Arkansas. When I entertain I use Mountain Valley Spring Water for the dinner table and for cocktails. I maintain that there is a certain terroir that you get from drinking Mountain Valley Spring Water cocktails that you cannot get by using any other spring water.
Mountain Valley Spring Water makes a great contribution to the cocktail hour since it is refreshing and pure. And by using spring water in place of other mixers it cuts back on calories. This sparkling blueberry mojito is one that I particularly like to serve during the summer.
