Friday Summer Cocktail – Blueberry Basil Fizz

I just love using seasonal fruit in cocktails. The blueberries are super good right now. 

Who knew blueberries and basil would go so well together.
Add a little fizz in there and really got something.

What you need,

8 basil leaves
4 mint leaves
1 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. lime juice
2 heaping tbsp. fresh blueberries
1 oz. white rum
Soda water
Blueberries for garnish

In a cocktail shaker muddle together the basil, mint, sugar, lime juice and blueberries. Add the rum and 4-5 ice cubes.
Shake 10-12 times until chilled.

Fill a glass with ice and strain the mixture over the ice. Top with soda water. Garnish with more fresh blueberries.

I have really enjoyed all the amazing summer cocktails I have gotten to try since May. I only have 2 left to go… any best by requests??

Happy Friday everyone, Have a great weekend‼



  1. Yes, who would have thought of blueberries and basil together! Hmm! I'm dying to try one of these! Looks refreshing and flavourful.

  2. I tried this once, and I was pleasantly surprised with the mixed taste of blueberry and basil. I'll be serving this, together with the wines that my fiancee ordered, in our wedding. I'm pretty sure our guests and family will enjoy this particular cocktail. :)
