Here’s one for all the gin drinkers out there. I am not one of you, but I’m also not one to discriminate based on alcohol type.
Gin usually just makes me feel like I’m drinking a pine cone, but when you add some complimentary flavors – mint, lemon, maybe a bit of fruit – it can actually be one of the most refreshing drinks you can find.
Hence, the Blueberry Hard Lemonade.
Mix it with the Boston Tea Party for a powerful Arnold Palmer. (No, seriously, if you do that, take extreme caution. That’s mixing a whole lot of liquors.)
Blueberry Hard Lemonade
2 tablespoons fresh blueberries
1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons gin (1 oz)
1/2 cup ginger ale or lemon-lime soda
lemon wedges, blueberries, and/or fresh mint for garnish
Here’s how you make it:
1. Muddle the blueberries, lemon juice, and mint leaves in a glass. If you don’t have a muddler…I would just use the end of a wooden spoon, but I’m super professional at this.
2. Fill the glass with ice, and pour the gin over the ice.
3. Top with ginger ale (or Sprite, or some kind of clear soda).
4. Garnish with blueberries, lemon, and mint if desired.
