So I heard today was DoomsDay. Apparently – And according to Apocalypse fanatics – the world will end in about 8 hours, give or take a few minutes. Scientists announced a polar shift and Doomsday theorists are up in arms, taking inventory of their freeze dried foods, and hiding in their underground bunkers today.

Me?

I prepare for DoomsDay in the same way I prepare for a hurricane.

With booze.

If we’re going to die anyway, why not celebrate the life you lead? No regrets. And let’s be real – I am not ready to survive some sort of apocalyptic event. I am nowhere NEAR ready. I have about 1 week’s worth of food in my pantry, if that. I have a lot of beans. Definitely beans.

Oh, I MEANT to prepare for the apocalypse. I watched Extreme Couponing. I meant to prepare. I do a bit of cardio, like every once in a while. You know, in case I have to run for my life. But I’m anemic, people. I tire easily. And I don’t understand the whole coupon clipping thing and how people end up paying .15 on a $450 grocery bill.

Can I be real with y’all? In real life, I’m a procrastinator.

I procrastinated the end of the world and now I.AM.NOT.READY.

So I’m going to have a drink. Because what I DO have is booze. And infused sugar. And mint in my fridge.  At least until the power goes out.

Flow with me. Let’s talk about Lavender Blueberry Mojito.

A few weeks ago I made a Lavender Vanilla Infused Sugar. For this VERY purpose.

No, not the end of the world.

For mojitos, silly!

I must warn you, if you’re not into floral drinks, this mojito is not for you. If you’re hiding in your bunker awaiting the end of the world, we can’t hang.

This drink is for those of us who aren’t ready. The ones who await the end of the world like New Year’s Eve in Times Square.

You guys, come hang with me.

Alright, this mojito situation starts with a lavender blueberry simple syrup. Blueberries are pureed with water and poured into a saucepan with lavender and granulated sugar. They’re cooked down this till it’s a beautiful purplish/bluish hue. Boom. Done.

Grab your infused sugar, mint, limes, rum, and seltzer.

Cool. Follow me, homeslice.

Muddle the mint with limes and a bit of lavender vanilla infused sugar.

Add the lavender blueberry syrup.

Add rum.

Mix that shit.

Add ice.

Top with selzer.

Stir a bit to incorporate.

Garnish with mint, ‘cause you’re a fancy mofo.

Sip.

Mojitos are sipped.

Don’t ever forget it.

Now wait for the end of the world.

See you on the flipside.
