Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • American Honey Whiskey
  • 1 pint of blueberries for puree
  • 2 tablespoons honey for puree
  • juice from 1/2 lemon for puree
  • 1 cup sugar for simple syrup
  • 1 cup water for simple syrup
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves for simple syrup
  • mint leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil.
  • Once boiling, take off of heat and stir in the mint leaves.
  • let sit for 30 minutes or until the syrup has reached your desired minty-ness :)
  • Strain the syrup and discard mint leaves (you can leave them in if you want them in the drink). This is your simple syrup.
  • In a food processor or blender, blend the blueberries, honey, and lemon juice until smooth. set aside. This is your puree.
  • In a shaker, combine equal parts whiskey and puree (I chose one shot of each, about 1.5 ounces) and about 2 shots of the simple syrup. if you prefer you drink stiffer, use more whiskey and less syrup.
  • Pour over ice.
  • Wear your best derby hat and enjoy!
