It's Wednesday, so if your weeks been anything like mine you might be in need a mid-week cocktail. I have to give my friends at The Kissing Tree Vintage (my #businessandbooze buddies) mad props for taking this drink to another level!
Disclaimer : if you already like Moscow Mules as is, you may become addicted. Consider yourselves warned.
Here is what you need to craft this delicious drink:
1/4 cup of vodka
ginger beer (about half of a can)
2 tbsp of blueberry syrup
A squeeze of fresh lime juice and a slice for garnish
*this quantity is based on one drink, so if you're wanting to get wild maybe add a little more vodka.
To make the blueberry syrup:
Bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 cup of blueberries, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sleeve. Add 2 to 4 tbsp of sugar to desired sweetness. (this amount will last you for plenty of drinks!)
