I grossly overshot when I purchased the fruit to make homemade blueberry jam last weekend. Pauvre moi. (Poor me.) So I asked Rob to come up with a blueberry-infused summer cocktail suitable for the July Fourth holiday weekend.
This blueberry cocktail recipe was prompted in part by this strawberry/Prosecco cocktail we made when strawberries were in season several weeks ago, though the muddled fruit is the only thing they have in common.
blueberry muddle cocktail
2 oz. vodka
juice of half a lemon
1/2 oz. agave nectar or simple syrup
1 oz. St. Germain
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the blueberries. Add other ingredients and shake well. Strain into two ice-filled cocktail glasses (we love 400ml Kimax beakers as barware; a highball would also work). Top with club soda and garnish each glass with 2 or 3 whole blueberries.
