Ingredients
  • 40 Fresh blueberries
  • 80 ml Gin (pick a floral one)
  • 15 ml/ 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 15 ml/ 1 tbsp Lime juice
  • 10 ml/ 2 tsp Violet liqueur
  • 40 ml/ 8 tsp Sugar cane syrup
  • 2 Egg whites (small eggs)
Garnish: blueberries and food-safe flowers (grown without harmful chemicals/ pesticides etc)
Instructions
  1. Begin by putting the blueberries into a jug and squash using a cocktail muddler or the end of a rolling pin

  2. Pour over the gin and muddle a little more

  3. Strain through a fine-meshed sieve, pressing down on the solids to extract all juice and gin. Discard the fruit pulp

  4. Optional extra step: strain the liquid a second time - this time through filter paper or a nut bag. This helps remove tiny specks of fruit and results in a lovely smooth drink

  5. Pour the blueberry gin into a cocktail shaker and add the other ingredients (lemon & lime juice, violet liqueur, sugar cane syrup and egg white). Put the top firmly on the shaker and give a good hard shake (at least 30 seconds)

  6. Now add 6 ice cubes to the shaker, cover and shake again for another 30 seconds

  7. Strain the drink into 2 cocktail glasses and garnish with blueberries and flowers. Serve immediately
