Blueberry Gin Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Blueberry Buck

Just at the turn of the seasons, San Francisco has finally gotten the word that it's Summer. While the entire city's been reveling in blue skies and warm weather, the lack of air conditioning has everyone reaching for an ice-cold beer. Me? I opted for an invigorating blueberry cocktail instead.

I consider gin, with its piney, clean flavors, to be the ideal spirit for creating thirst-quenching cocktails. When I got ahold of this recipe with ginger beer and blueberries, I had a feeling it'd be the ultimate refreshment. And it is: the blueberry buck is floral and zippy, with an effervescent ginger finish. For the recipe, be sure to read on.
