MOCKTAIL MONDAY: FEEL THE BLUE…BERRIES

October 14, 2019 2 min read

Has it really been a month since Ray graced us with a Mocktail Monday?

You are in luck today – get the glasses ready, Ray is here to fill your day with his wordy ramblings and a recipe for something seasonably sweet.

As written by Ray:

This post-season potable has a goodbye whisper from summer in the form of blueberry and a gentle gesture to your taste buds that fall flavors are on the way. It may sound strange, but blueberry and rosemary play well together.

I love this transitional mocktail. It’s got a little bit of summer and a little bit of fall all in one glass, it’s easy to put together whether you’re serving two or twelve, and it feels like a treat.  Do yourself the favor and screenshot this one, download it, print it out… just make sure you can find it again because I’m sure it’ll be a drink you’ll want to make more than just on a Monday.

Rosemary Blueberry Fizz

(serving: one 12 oz glass)

Ingredients:

8-12 blueberries

1 rosemary sprig, stripped

1/2 oz honey (roughly a tablespoon)

1 oz fresh lime and/or strawberries

4 oz sparkling water

Ice

Instructions:

Thoroughly muddle the blueberries, rosemary leaves, and honey in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add a squeeze of lime juice and top off with ice.  Cover and shake vigorously for a few seconds. Strain through a mesh strainer into a tall glass with fresh ice. Top with sparkling water and stir.If you want to get fancy and impress guests, garnish it with a sprig of rosemary and a lime wheel.

A sprig of rosemary and a lime wheel?  Well give me a minute as I get my fancy fascinator on. Hats off to you Ray. For all the readers, make sure you make it, post it, tag it, because we want to see it. @motherhoodmaternity #mocktailmonday
