Inspiration

Diablo Azul

I gotta say, I’m not really a shots kind of girl but this cocktail turned into a fancy little shot may just change that. 

Having grown up in New England the taste of a Maine blueberry is unmistakeable. It tastes like the freshness of summer wrapped in the depth of fall all at once. And that shines through in this simple cocktail that can inspire the fiesty blue devil in all of us. 

Let’s Get Stirrin’

Ingredients

2oz Suerte Tequila

Metcalfe’s Blueberry Liqueur  (amount depends on cocktail or shot, below)

4 oz Bantam Ginger Beer (alcoholic)

Squeeze of lime

Instructions

To make the cocktail version: Mix ¾ oz of blueberry liqueur with tequila and ginger beer. Garnish with lime, sip and enjoy!

To make shot versions: Mix tequila and ginger beer together. Pour ¼-½ oz blueberry liqueur into the bottom of a tall (2oz) shot glass. Slowly pour the tequila/ginger beer onto a spoon held inside the top of the shot glass to gently add the liquid on top of the blueberry liqueur so it doesn’t mix. Garnish with lime…bottoms up!

…but am I going to like it?

Getting to know your palate, what you like, and what you don’t like is a critical part of being a great craft tippler AND key to becoming a great home bartender as well!

So before you break out that barware and buy the key ingredients, here’s a little guidance on what to expect from this cocktail so you can start to hone in on exactly what elements of cocktails you enjoy and which you’d prefer to minimize.  This helps you order new cocktails you love when you’re out on the town better as well!
