Currently slurping this blueberry ginger gin and tonic, while waiting for the Olympics to start. Nice.
I was 100% certain that I wasn’t going to get excited about London 2012… but anyone who follows me on Twitter knows that all ended yesterday when I saw the torch pass by my work. Now I am giddier than a preteen whose been told Justin Bieber is in the next Twilight movie. Oh well. These things happen 🙂
I obviously have a wee crush for any twist on the humble gin and tonic.
Blueberry ginger gin & tonic
You will need:
1 shot glass of gin
a couple of ice cubes
a good, hearty squeeze of lemon
12 or so blueberries
ginger ale or (even better) ginger beer
blueberries to garnish
Mix the gin, ice cubes, lemon and blueberries in a bowl or sturdy glass. Muddle them together (I used a wooden spoon). It might help to crush the blueberries with your fingers before you drop them in. It makes it easier to muddle.
Pour into a serving glass through a strainer to take out the bits.
Top with ginger ale/beer as desired. throw in a few mint leaves and blueberries to garnish.
Sit back and enjoy the opening ceremonies.
