Blueberry whiskey spritzers make refreshing summer cocktails!
Feel free to adjust the ratios of cocktail ingredients to suit your tastes. This makes a very slightly sweet drink, but you can increase or decrease the amount of blueberry simple syrup to play with the sweetness. If you taste the drink and think it needs a little more of any one thing, just add a splash and give it a stir! These cocktails are very forgiving and easy to tweak.
This cocktail would also be great with fresh basil or rosemary! Muddle some herbs into the cocktail shaker before mixing the drink or add a few leaves while you cook the simple syrup for impart a subtle, earthy flavor.
You can make the blueberry syrup a few days in advance and store it in an airtight container in the fridge until you’re ready to use.
You’ll have some extra syrup after making this recipe – use it in other cocktails, in salad dressings, or as a sweet addition to your morning smoothie!
To dress these drinks up a bit, garnish with fresh blueberries and a slice of lemon.
You could also use champagne or club soda in place of the tonic water.
