Blueberry Bourbon Cocktail


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.

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

  2. Kamala helped with the photograph composition :)

    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.
