Blueberry Mint Spritzer

Ingredients:

Spritzer:

  • 1 shot creme de cassis
  • 1/2 shot mint syrup
  • 1 shot blueberry syrup
  • 3 shots Sprite or champagne
  • 1 splash of lemon or lime

Blueberry Syrup:

  • 1 C Water
  • 1/4 C Sugar or to taste
  • 1 C Blueberries (frozen or fresh)

Mint Syrup:

  • 1 C Water
  • 1/4 C Sugar or to taste
  • 1 large bunch of fresh mint leaves

Directions:

  1. For the syrups combine in a sauce pan (separately or together) and bring to a simmer. Mash to bring out the flavors. Run through a fine mesh strainer and set aside.
  2. Combine the spritzer ingredients and top with ice. Carefully pour your clear carbonated beverage over the top (or over the top of a back of a spoon if you feelin cray) to create a layered ombre effect. Garnish with a sprig of mint and fresh blueberries, if you care about that kind of thing. Adjust anything as you see fit, this is very much a to taste kind of thing. Enjoy!
