blueberry moscow mule

blueberry_moscow_mule_1It’s been 7 weeks since I have given birth and there has yet to be a cocktail post?  What. The. Heck.  I am going to blame baby brain (you know, since I can no longer use pregnancy brain as an excuse).  Regardless, you have my deepest apologies for the lack of boozy posts.  In fact I think you deserve two of these today for all of your patience.

blueberry_moscow_mule_2If you have yet to try the ever so trendy moscow mule you are truly missing out on something amazing.  Back in December we posted the traditional recipe in this fun gift kit.  This time around I wanted to add a fruity summer twist with blueberries.  They pair well with lime and do no compete with the ginger flavored beer.  Of course the classic mule is good, good, good – but this version is awfully fabulous too.

    I never had a Mule before. I just made one. I only used 1/2 ounce of the blueberry syrup. I saved the blueberries from making the syrup and muddled some at the bottom of the glass. Very nice, but dangerous!
