Shall we take a break from lentils and all that healthy eating to enjoy a cocktail on the beach? I don’t know about you, but I can only be virtuous for so long.
Supplies being somewhat limited at the cottage, this drink is rather similar to the Lake Huron Breeze I made last week with strawberries and lime. I’m no mixologist, but I
know what I like do like to mix together some of my favourite flavours.
To make your own blueberry wave, mash up a small handful of blueberries and muddle with a few mint leaves and a teaspoon or so of sugar. Add to a few ice cubes in a highball glass, and squeeze a lemon wedge over. Add 1-1\2 or 2 ounces of gin, top with tonic water and stir. Garnish with a few blueberries and a mint sprig. I was going to add a lemon twist, but in my excitement to
photograph taste the drink, I forgot.
I admit, mashed blueberries are not the most attractive sight, but they certainly taste good! This pretty, pale lavender concoction was a refreshing accompaniment to the setting sun, and the perfect way to end an afternoon at the beach.
