This cocktail came to me one Friday evening with two of my dearest friends, Nakeeta and Daenia, after our regularly monthly Friday evening dinner splurge. They decided to stop by my apartment and by means of my usual hospitality, a cocktail was born. I had a pack of frozen blueberries in the freezer and thought that this would add well to my showmanship. It did. The cocktail which would have been a usual cloudy-green from the lime juice, morphed before our eyes from bore to a ruby red wonder with the addition a few simple frozen blueberries. The choice of Appleton Genesis was the perfect spike as it added the right amount of buzz without being too harsh. Don’t underestimate its strength though…after but two drinks, Daenia was knocked out completely, and Nakeeta was about to follow suit.
Try it out and make a nice impression with your mixology skills!
