I’ve been feeling a lot of love toward blueberries lately, most likely because of the deliciously hot weather and sunshine we’ve been having. I decided I wanted to find a new cocktail to try this weekend; one that featured both blueberries and bourbon (if you know me, you know I love it). I happened upon this recipe on cocktailia.com and decided it perfectly fit the bill. Now all I have to do is get a Maker’s Mark/blueberry infusion going and I’ll be golden for the weekend.
