Get out your muddler for this amazing cocktail that fits perfectly into any patriotic-themed party. Once again, this one amazes me with the flavor combination because blueberry would not be a flavor we would normally associate with anise, but here the berries are placed in the perfect balance with absinthe and the ginger beer is the perfect finishing touch.

For the blueberry vodka, you could choose either Van Gogh's Acai-Blueberry, which is deep bluish-purple, or a clear one like Stoli or Smirnoff. It depends on the color that you want to get in the end. Also, Chambord is the natural choice for the raspberry liqueur, though there are a few others that will work great as well.


Steps to Make It

  1. Muddle fresh blueberries and add syrup, Lucid, juice and vodka.

  2. Add ice and shake and pour into highball glass.

  3. Drizzle Liqueur and top with Ginger Beer.

  4. Garnish with one sugar cube.
