While canning our pounds and pounds of blueberries this year, I scooped out a small amount of our blueberry mint jam before it was fully ready, keeping it looser to use as a syrup. (If interested, follow my recipe for Blueberry Mint Jam, and simply stop reducing your mixture after about 8-10 minutes, before it gets too thick.)
This syrup is delightful in lemonades, as well as cocktails. Try out this delicious recipe, and see for yourself!
2-oz of gin OR whiskey, depending on your preference
1-tablespoon blueberry mint syrup
Mint for garnish
- Add syrup, liquor and lemonade to a shaker, with ice. Shake well
- Strain into glass, add mint. Enjoy.
