I knew I had to dedicate this drink to The House In The Cerulean Sea. Both the characters and vibe of this drink are perfect together. I can’t image pairing a Blueberry Mojito Mocktail with any other novel, can you?

Diving Into The House In The Cerulean Sea
“A magical island. A dangerous task. A burning secret.
Linus Baker leads a quiet, solitary life. At forty, he lives in a tiny house with a devious cat and his old records. As a Case Worker at the Department in Charge Of Magical Youth, he spends his days overseeing the well-being of children in government-sanctioned orphanages.
When Linus is unexpectedly summoned by Extremely Upper Management he’s given a curious and highly classified assignment: travel to Marsyas Island Orphanage, where six dangerous children reside: a gnome, a sprite, a wyvern, an unidentifiable green blob, a were-Pomeranian, and the Antichrist. Linus must set aside his fears and determine whether or not they’re likely to bring about the end of days.
But the children aren’t the only secret the island keeps. Their caretaker is the charming and enigmatic Arthur Parnassus, who will do anything to keep his wards safe. As Arthur and Linus grow closer, long-held secrets are exposed, and Linus must make a choice: destroy a home or watch the world burn…”
The House In The Cerulean Sea is such a great feel-good book. If you’re a fan of magic, calming atmospheres, special abilities and friendship – then this book is a must read.
However, I have to recommend you listen to the audiobook. The narrator is one of my favorites and really encompasses the audience into the novel itself.
I felt like this book fit well with the overall taste of this fruity mocktail. Originally, I planned on dedicating this drink to Linus but soon realized….this drink is a little bit of EVERY character in The House In The Cerulean Sea.
It’s not just Linus. It has a playful and a sweet tart flavor that lingers on your tongue. Perhaps it was a mix of elements from the blueberries and lime or the look of it – but something told me this drink had to be dedicated to The House In The Cerulean Sea.
