THL: What does it taste like?
THL: How should you drink it?
Distillery owners John and Deborah Patt rave about the Blueberry Mojito from Caballero's Restaurant in Goodyear, Arizona. Make this cocktail by adding muddled blueberries to the classic Mojito recipe, and be sure to use Gold Miner Dark Rum.
