Happy Hour: Blue Gin Rizz

The other day I was at the farmers market when I noticed a sad sign saying, "last day for blueberries." I immediately purchased a pint with the intention of using them in a delectable drink. While the original recipe, from H. Joseph Ehrmann of San Francisco's Elixir, calls for kumquats, I couldn't find them, so I substituted fresh peaches.

The final concoction is refreshing, tangy, and light. The ginger liqueur stabilizes the natural bite of the gin resulting in a cocktail that is balanced and easy to drink. It would be great paired with food, but it's also lovely when sipped solo. To say cheers to the weekend with this recipe,

Oooh I've been looking for a way to use my ginger liqueur and this sounds delicious. I can use my waning blueberry supply.

We did get some fresh cherries though and fried artichoke hearts and they did have blueberries. I'll pick some up Sat. as that too is a work day.

It's 11:23 pm and I just got online and I think this looks very yummy. I wish I had one. Hubby had a photo assignment today out of town and I had to work and missed my SUGAR fix.

I'm scooping them up as fast as I can. One of my favorite summertime breakfasts is a combo of blueberries and nectarines splashed with cream and sprinkled with sugar. Couple that with peanut butter toast...amazing!
