We are spending a few weeks at our parents’ lake home in Michigan. We go blueberry picking every summer and bring home a big bounty! We enjoy trying to come up with different blueberry recipes. We have done blueberry coffee cake, mini blueberry galettes and blueberry sorbet. This time, we came up with a summery cocktail. We made blueberry simple syrup to compliment a lemonade vodka drink. Add some fresh mint leaves and you are set for a tasty cocktail perfect for a late summer afternoon.
