Today's Memorial Day Cocktail for the weekend comes to us from food blogger, Danielle at Beyond the Plate and this one will definitely make you feel like celebrating. Thanks, Danielle for this incredible recipe.
Blueberry Buck (courtesy of the good folks at Hendrick’s Gin)
Makes one strong cocktail
12 blueberries (defrosted if using frozen berries)
4 tablespoons good quality gin
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
6 tablespoons ginger beer
1-2 mint sprigs
Place the blueberries, gin and lemon juice in a measuring cup or shallow bowl. Muddle everything together (I like to use an immersion blender for this), until every single blueberry is crushed beyond recognition.
Fill a chilled glass with ice cubes. Strain the blueberry-gin mixture over the ice.
Pour over the ginger beer, give everything a good stir, and garnish with mint to serve.
