Blueberry Thyme Gin Fizz

IMG_4570

This Fourth of July, toast your friends and family with this bright, fizzy, and supremely summery drink. Blueberries, at their best in the summer months, lend a subtle sweetness and beautiful color to this cocktail, while fresh thyme and St. Germain add subtle floral and herbal undertones for balance. Simple to prepare and not overly sweet, this is a refreshing libation you’ll want to make all summer long.

Serves 1 {easily multiplied}

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons blueberries {fresh or frozen}
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin {try Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray, or Hendrick’s here}
  • 1/2 oz. St. Germain
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • leaves from one sprig of thyme, plus more to garnish
  • your favorite sparkling water, to serve

Directions:

  1. In a high-speed blender, blitz together the blueberries, gin, St. Germain, bitters, and thyme until smooth and well combined.
  2. Pour this mix into a tall glass over ice, and top up with sparkling water. Garnish with an extra sprig of thyme, if desired.

{Alternatively, you can muddle together the blueberries with the remaining ingredients, before topping up with sparkling water. You’ll have a thicker, though no less delicious result.}
