The Lightly Spicy Blueberry Cocktail

The Lightly Spicy Blueberry Cocktail

On one of my nights off my husband asked me to make him something fruity and refreshing. On the occasion he drinks at home it’s usually picked at random; off the shelf and neat. So this was a request out of place. Nonetheless, I got to digging around in my refrigerator and oh… all I had was lemons and blueberries! I didn’t even have simple syrup made. In fact, the only syrup I had was a cinnamon one. 😑  Right? I decided to roll with it. The worst that could happen is my husband doesn’t like it — but drinks it anyway. Because he loves me.

The result was, surprisingly, damn good! A truly surprising blueberry cocktail! I loved the combination of cinnamon and blueberries and now it’s one of my specials.

It never hurts to experiment and as they say “necessity is the mother of invention”.

In a shaker muddle:

  • 3 – 5 blueberries
  • 4 – 5 mint leaves

Then add:

  • 2 oz Deep Eddy Lemon vodka
  • 0.75 oz cinnamon syrup
  • 0.75 oz lemon juice

Add ice, shake, and double strain over ice in a tall glass. Garnish it with a spanked mint sprig.

 

A super easy and very yummy blueberry cocktail that packs a pleasant surprise.

Enjoy!
