Want to start the new year off right? Try a refreshing and healthy cocktail recipe. This delicious creation is loaded with fresh blueberries, agave nectar and lemon juice, but feel free to substitute your favorite fruit for the berries. I realized that the cocktail would have tasted even better with winter fruits that are in season now (such as satsuma tangerines or pomegranates)–well after the cocktail was finished. Take my mistake and make your own healthy winter cocktail.
Blueberry Sparkling Cocktail
2 small handfuls of blueberries, reserve a few
1 ounce agave nectar
11/2 ounces fresh lemon juice
2 ounces vodka (feel free to add more)
2 ounces blueberry acai juice (optional)
1 lemon wheel
About 1/4 cup soda water (or ginger ale)
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the blueberries with the lemon juice, agave nectar, and blueberry acai juice. Add the vodka and shake well. Strain into a chilled glass. Top with a few splashes of soda water.
Makes 1 nice sized cocktail!
