1 tbspn honey
1 tbspn lemon juice
Sparkling water to top
- Muddle the blueberries, rosemary and honey at bottom of shaker.
- Add lemon juice and shake over ice.
- Strain into a glass with fresh ice, and garnish with extra blueberries and rosemary
Inspired by http://www.townandcountrymag.com/leisure/drinks/how-to/g785/best-mocktail-recipes/?slide=2, but butchered, as usual.
‘Twas late on a Friday, and fresh blueberries were a dream. But there were frozen ones loitering…
Someone had also borrowed the shaker, so in reality, this was a stir job at the bottom of a glass, with the muddled fruit/rosemary removed with a spoon. And decorations with frozen blueberries. At least the rosemary plant in my garden never fails me.
Muddling with the bottom of a spoon, you get the fantastic colour starting.
Add the soda water and garnish, and voila!
Veeerrry refreshing, although I could have been tempted for more strength/less soda water. I guess it depends on the size of the glass.
