Rummaging around in my mom’s fridge can yield some interesting things that I don’t usually buy when planning a dinner party – like Just Blueberry juice.

Which I promptly mixed with whiskey and discovered that the powerful flavor of the juice melds really surprisingly well with the strong flavor of the bourbon. I added a little maple syrup to sweeten it up, and WOW. Gorgeous drink! And so easy.

I can’t wait to make this for a dinner party that’s blue- or purple-themed! It’s so simple that I can stir up a pitcher of them before guests arrive in about a minute, and it’s strong enough to satisfy those who like that sort of thing while sweet enough to satisfy those with a sweet tooth.

  1. The composition, color, tone of the photograph, particularly the gradients/contrasts of cool blue and lambent red and gold, are exquisite and painterly.

    Update: I mixed this cocktail with a blueberry-raspberry blend juice and it wasn’t as good. The Just Blueberry is so strong that it stands up to the whiskey and maple syrup, so I really recommend using only that.
