Blueberries are Forever

The saying goes “Diamonds are Forever,” but this drink is just as good as any piece of jewelry.

We originally made this drink on 28JUL for the live stream. You can check that out over on the Facebook page, if you are so inclined. It was so good, we had to garnish it properly and get it put into the shoot for August.

We’re just going to jump right into it. Here’s how it’s done —

Blueberries are Forever
1.5 oz. Gin
0.5 oz. Agave
0.5 oz. Lime Juice
0.5 oz. Pineapple Juice
0.75 oz. Simple Syrup (or Blueberry Simple, for extra flavor)
4-6 Blueberries
4-6 Mint Leaves, depending on size

Muddle Mint, Blueberries, Agave, Lime, and Simple
Add ice, Gin, and Pineapple juice
Shake
Strain into rocks glass over ice
Garnish with blueberries and mint sprig

Notes: This drink has a great balance of everything. It’s just sweet enough, with just enough alcohol, and the overall look is fantastic. It is a great summer-time offering for your next get together. Despite the work to get it made, this drink is definitely worth it.
