Blueberry Pineapple Mule

Now that the “winter” (let’s be honest Texans…it basically skipped us this year) is officially behind us and all the pretty things are blooming I can’t help but thirst for those summer cocktails. So many combinations, so little time! Wait…that’s not true…there’s always time for a cocktail 🙂

This time I was craving something fruity, tangy with a hint of mint – hello Moscow Mule! But to kick up the flavor a bit (not that Moscow Mules need it) I threw in some extra goodies and man did it knock it out of the park.

I give you, the Blueberry Pineapple Mule. And I highly suggest making some Blueberry Mint ice cubes for the occasion! How you ask? Marinate blueberries in some vodka for at least 25-30 mins, dump in an ice-cube tray with some mint sprigs and if you can find it, some blueberry juice before topping off with water. This will not only add a festive pop of color to your cocktail but also will help it not water down too quickly. Hope you enjoy!

    I’m definitely making this once the warm weather hits, so that I can sip and sit in my backyard and enjoy. It’s a pretty easy recipe for something that looks so lavish. I won’t need to let you know how I like it cause I know already I’ll love it. Thank you!
