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.blueberries crushed with ginger and sugar

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.straining blueberries and ginger for cocktail recipe

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.champagne flutes with blueberry ginger puree

You start by dividing the puree between two glasses. Champagne flutes always make drinks taste better.making a blueberry ginger cocktail with blueberry juice

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.glass of blueberry ginger bellini

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!looking down at bubbly blueberry cocktail
