Looking for a cocktail made with blueberry juice

Tehama Jan 25, 2012 06:13 AM

Calling all mixologists! Without boring you all with the reason behind my request, I am hoping that you all might have some ideas for a cocktail made with a blueberry juice base. All recipes appreciated... ideally quantity to serve 8 - 10. THANK YOU!

    I haven't had it, but this sounds like it would do:

    Maine Mule
    by Paul Imbesi, Brand Manager Barritt's Ginger Beer, Philadelphia, PA

    2 1/2 oz Vodka, Cold River Blueberry
    1/3 c Blueberry (fresh)
    1 oz Simple syrup
    3 wdg Lemon
    3 oz Ginger beer, Barritt's

    Muddle lemons, simple syrup, vodka and blueberries. Shake and strain into ice-filled Collins glass. Top off with Barritt's Ginger Beer

      Ohhh - that certainly sounds like it has promise. I'll probably try to round up some Blenheim's ginger beer. Thanks so much!

      Bellini? or I saw one with limoncello and a splash of soda that sounded good.

        Bellini! Now you're talking! I had been looking for a liquor based cocktail, but your idea is definitely a contender. Thank you!
