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.
A Blueberry Bourbon Cocktail as easy as 1-2-3
one part maple syrup
two parts bourbon or whiskey
three parts pure blueberry juice
Mix thoroughly by either shaking or stirring with ice. Pour and garnish with floating blueberries to make it look pretty.
