Blueberry Basil Moscow Mule
Who else needs a cocktail right about now?! Why not whip up this easy cocktail that will brighten up your day in no time. This twist on the classic is even better than the original. Cheers to happy hour on a Tuesday (or whatever day it is)!
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 pint blueberries
7-10 basil leaves, torn
1 oz simple syrup
Juice from 1/2 lime
2 oz vodka
The first thing you want to do is make the simple syrup. In a small pan over medium high heat add the water, sugar, blueberries, and basil leaves. Let it come up to a simmer, cook 5 minutes or until the blueberries pop, then take off the heat and let the syrup cook completely
In a glass (or copper mug) add in the simple syrup, lime, and vodka. Give it a good stir to combine
Fill the glass with crushed ice, top with ginger beer, and garnish with a spring of basil. How easy is that? Cheers!
