Getting tired of the same old gin and tonic recipe? It might be time to shake things up. This blueberry gin recipe is the perfect way to add a fruity twist to the popular drink.
While in Las Vegas, I became obsessed with the classic gin and tonic. It was easy, cheap, and super refreshing when you were out in the hot desert sun.
Coming back from vacation, I found myself wanting to explore the seemingly endless possibilities that gin has to offer.
That is when I found Dixon’s, a distillery in Guelph, ON, that offers a variety of different flavours of the liquor. What stood out to me the most was their flavoured gins. Coming in both blueberry and orange, it’s a nice twist for those summer days.
Their website also advertises a Wicked Licorice Gin. However, we haven’t been able to get our hands on a bottle of this just yet.
While there are a variety of different ways to pair blueberry gin, we followed the rough guidelines the distillery recommended, mixing it with a bit of lemonade and soda water.
Let me tell you, if you like sweet drinks, this is THE summer drink you want to have on your bar cart this year.
Here’s What You Need To Make This Blueberry Gin Recipe:
- 3/4 cup of ice
- 1 wedge of lemon, squeezed
- 1/2 cup of lemonade
- Soda water
- 2 oz of Dixon’s Wicked Blueberry Gin
How To Make It:
Fill your cup up with ice before adding the lemon juice, gin and lemonade.
Once mixed, fill the rest of the glass up with soda water and mix together.
Garnish with lemon and/or blueberries and enjoy!
