Refreshing Blueberry Mint Cocktail
I love to savor each sip of my drink, so I love the bold flavor of this bourbon blueberry tonic.
The taste is complex, but the cocktail is surprisingly simple to put together.
It combines several of my favorite ingredients, which complement each other perfectly.
There are blueberries, fresh mint leaves, tart lime juice, tonic water with quinine and, of course, a good, flavorful craft bourbon.
When you craft your cocktail, use your bourbon of choice.
I like mine with some sweetness, so I chose a brown sugar bourbon today.
Even with the other ingredients, you will be able to taste the bourbon.
So, choose whichever brand strikes your fancy.
It could be a pricey bottle from a small craft distillery or an inexpensive bottle from a discount store.
The recipe calls for muddling, so you’ll want to use a muddler to bring out the flavors of the fruit and mint.
If you are in a pinch, you can use a spoon.
I have a bunch of decorative cocktail picks at home, but I usually end up choosing a simple stainless steel pick for my garnish.
Of course, you’ll want to eat the blueberries from the pick after you’ve finished your drink.
