The Pocket Cocktail
In this series, we pair one of our one-of-a-kind print pocket squares with a delicious cocktail. One starts a conversation, the other keeps it going. Today’s edition is a great way to indulge in the gorgeous spring weather this weekend. It was created by Morgan of The Drink Blog.
The Blueberry Rum Fizz
[inspired by our Arboretum pocket square]
Create a blueberry liqueur springtime elixir, and kick up your feet.
- 2 oz.white rum
- 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 1 oz. blueberry liqueur
- 1 tsp. sugar
- club soda
Take some blueberries (let’s say a half handful) and put them in your cocktail shaker with sugar. Muddle them together to create your blueberry syrup. Add rum, lemon juice and blueberry liqueur to your blueberry syrup. Then, add some ice, and shake it. Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice, and pour your cocktail into your glass, before topping it with club soda. Garnish with blueberries.
Notes: The richness that rum gets from the sugarcane plays fantastically with blueberries.
