i love these PYTs for a lot of reasons.
too many to mention here.
last weekend, with the help of these friends,
i tried to perfect the 'blueberry smash'
i found a recipe for this cocktail in bon appetit,
and it seemed like an obvious choice.
2 lemons, sliced into rounds
2 limes, sliced into rounds
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup (loosely packed) fresh mint leaves plus sprigs for garnish
1 1/2 cups vodka
3/4 cup st. germain (elderflower liqueur)
(yes, you'll need to make a special trip tot he liguer store)
1. using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon,
coarsely mash lemon and lime slices, blueberries, and mint leaves in a large pitcher.
stir in vodka, st. germain.
2. divide drink among coupe or highball glasses, filled with ice.
garnish each drink with a mint sprig.
so......... let's just say this:
the first version of this drink was
2. SUPER strong
later in the weekend, i think i perfected the recipe....
1. in large tumbler, muddle blueberries and mint
2. add juice from 2 limes and 2 lemons.

3. shake vigorously.
4. two options for serving...
