Blueberries are in-season (which means you don't have to re-mortgage to afford them right now). Here's how we like to incorporate them into cocktails.
Blueberries are an excellent addition to cocktails, imparting not only their vibrant hue but also a burst of refreshing flavour that elevates the drinking experience.
These small, antioxidant-rich berries bring a delightful sweetness and tartness, creating a balanced profile that complements a wide range of spirits. Their natural sweetness allows for a reduction in added sugars or syrups, making cocktails both flavorful and healthier.
Beyond their taste, blueberries offer a visual appeal that enhances the aesthetic of any cocktail. The deep blue-purple hue of muddled or infused blueberries adds a touch of sophistication and uniqueness to the drink, making it visually enticing. This is particularly appealing for mixologists and home bartenders looking to craft visually stunning and Instagram-worthy concoctions.
