1 cocktail or a few shots
Classy shots, Cocktail parties
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’
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!
