You know I love my cocktails. I love them when they’re easy, I love them when they’re pretty, and I love them when they’re plentiful.This gorgeous Blueberry Ginger Bellini uses blueberries & blueberry juice paired with fresh ginger to make a refreshing non-alcoholic or boozy cocktail. 

When you add fresh ginger to anything, it gives it a real bite, but the flavor is quite energizing at the same time. When I made this drink, the ginger flavor really came through, but that was because I shredded up my ginger with my microblade instead of chopping it up with a knife. More surface area = more flavor. If you want the ginger to come across a bit milder, I recommend chopping it into larger pieces. This is a total preference kind of thing and I like to give you options.This gorgeous Blueberry Ginger Bellini uses blueberries & blueberry juice paired with fresh ginger to make a refreshing non-alcoholic or boozy cocktail. 

Although blueberries don’t have seeds that are unpleasant like blackberries or raspberries, I still like to strain my fruit and ginger mixture to get a nice smooth puree.This gorgeous Blueberry Ginger Bellini uses blueberries & blueberry juice paired with fresh ginger to make a refreshing non-alcoholic or boozy cocktail. 

You start by dividing the puree between two glasses. Champagne flutes always make drinks taste better.This gorgeous Blueberry Ginger Bellini uses blueberries & blueberry juice paired with fresh ginger to make a refreshing non-alcoholic or boozy cocktail. 

Then you top with blueberry juice. I bought mine at Trader Joe’s and have no idea if its easy or difficult to find elsewhere as I do 90% of my grocery shopping there.This gorgeous Blueberry Ginger Bellini uses blueberries & blueberry juice paired with fresh ginger to make a refreshing non-alcoholic or boozy cocktail. 

Then, you have to make a critical decision: do you top with sparkling apple cider or do you top with sparkling wine? I suppose it depends greatly on who will be enjoying the cocktail/mocktail. If you’re undecided, you could always add a little of each and call it a day. Whatever tickles your fancy. Either way, this drink is super tasty and quite refreshing!This gorgeous Blueberry Ginger Bellini uses blueberries & blueberry juice paired with fresh ginger to make a refreshing non-alcoholic or boozy cocktail.
