Blueberry thrill

Blueberry thrill


2 oz. honey
1 oz. hot water
4 blueberries
1 1/4 oz. orange liqueur
3/4 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. gin
2 oz. soda water
1 mint sprig

Most Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop locations have bars, where the mixologists favor natural sweeteners such as honey and fruit. This refreshing beverage takes advantage of summer-ripe blueberries.


Mix honey with hot water to dissolve into a syrup. Place blueberries in a shaker tin and muddle. Add honey syrup, orange liqueur, lemon juice, gin and ice to the tin. Cover and shake for 5 to 10 seconds. Place a strainer over the tin and pour contents into an ice-filled glass. Top with soda water and garnish with mint.
