With nothing but blueberries on the brain this month, it's only natural that I've been playing with the little guys in my drinks, too. And this weekend, I think I found the best blueberry cocktail to date. Meet the Blueberries Gone Wild.
Despite its muddled preparation, and its Joe Francis-ish moniker, this cocktail is pure and clean. With a blush color and juicy flavor, it's a more herbaceous cosmo, only made with farm-fresh ingredients and a hint of juniper-scented gin. Like the sound of it? Then get the recipe now.
12 blueberries, 4 skewered on a pick
1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/4 ounce agave nectar
Ice cubes, plus crushed ice
1-1/2 ounces gin
1/4 ounce all-natural grenadine
1 lemon wheel
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle 8 blueberries with the lemon juice and agave nectar. Add ice cubes and the gin and pomegranate liqueur and shake well. Strain into a crushed ice–filled rocks glass and garnish with the skewered blueberries and the lemon wheel.
Makes 1 cocktail.
