Mixed fruit Mojito

So I'm apparently on a blogging binge today (not quite Georgetown-girl style, but almost). Last night, when hanging out with one of my dearest and best friends, we decided to make mojitos, but not having mint or limes, we decided to go the fruit way. I think you could use any fruit you want, but I like this mixture in particular. My recipe is for 3 people, but you could obviously change it to serve as many or as few people as you like.

2 Kiwis
1 pint blueberries
1 large handful grapes (red and green)
Pinch of sugar
About 3 shots of good, aged rum (Bacardi is what I used)
crushed ice
ginger ale

Large plastic cup; ladle that fits inside said cup; knife; shot glass; 3 glasses to serve in

Prep Work:
1) Peel the kiwi and cut into large chunks. 2) Rinse the grapes in cold water and slice the grapes in half, lengthwise. 3) Rinse the blueberries, set aside

Mixing Instructions:
Gather your fruits, with the pinch of sugar, putting them in the large plastic cup; then take the ladle and mash the fruits. You should stop mashing when about 2/3 of the fruit look pulverized but there is still about 1/3 in chunks. Fill three glasses halfway with crushed ice, then ladle some of the fruit mixture into each one. Add one full shot of the rum to each glass, then top off with ginger ale. A nice spring drink to enjoy with a couple of friends...
