Ingredients

Instructions

  • Muddle mint leaves and lemon wedge in the bottle of a cocktail shaker.
  • Add in the blueberry syrup and whiskey.
  • Add ice and shake vigourously for 10 seconds.
  • Strain into an 8-ounce old fashioned glass filled halfway with ice.
  • Top with club soda.

Notes

  • Substitutions & Variations:
    • For a mapley twist, replace a half-ounce of Blueberry Simple Syrup with half-ounce maple syrup. Make sure to use the real stuff! This is especially tasty in fall when you want comforting flavors, or in spring during maple syrup season!
    • Lime fan? Replace lemon wedges with lime instead. 
    • It’s best to fill the cocktail shaker with whole ice cubes for shaking, but you can serve this drink over crushed ice if you prefer. 
  • Muddle means smashing it up to release flavor. Often, berries, fruit, and/or fresh herbs are muddled to make craft cocktails. In this recipe, you muddle lemon and mint together. You can buy a muddler to add to your barware set, use a mortar and pestle, or simply use the handle of a wooden spoon!
