Blueberry-Lemon Gin Fizz: A Refreshing Cocktail with Dubrovnik Republic Gin
- 60 ml Dubrovnik Republic Gin
- 15 ml Fresh Lemon Juice
- 10 Fresh Blueberries (plus a few for garnish)
- 15 ml Simple Syrup
- Soda Water
- Lemon Twist or Lemon Slice (for garnish)
- Fresh Mint Leaves (optional, for garnish)
Muddle the Blueberries: In a cocktail shaker, muddle the blueberries with the simple syrup. This process will release their natural juice and flavors, blending seamlessly with the syrup.
Add Gin and Lemon Juice: Pour the Dubrovnik Republic Gin and fresh lemon juice into the shaker. This combination of citrus and the unique botanicals of the gin will create a flavorful base for your cocktail.
Shake It Up: Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. Shaking not only chills the drink but also helps to blend the flavors thoroughly.
Strain into a Glass: Strain the mixture into a highball glass filled with ice. Straining helps to keep the muddled blueberry skins and pulp out of your drink, ensuring a smooth texture.
Top with Soda Water: Gently top the mixture in the glass with soda water. This adds a refreshing effervescence to your cocktail.
Garnish and Serve: Garnish with a lemon twist or lemon slice, a few whole blueberries, and, if desired, a sprig of mint for an extra touch of freshness.
Enjoy Responsibly: Sip and enjoy the refreshing fusion of lemon, blueberry, and the distinctive taste of Dubrovnik Republic Gin.
This Blueberry-Lemon Gin Fizz is an ideal cocktail for warm days or any occasion when you crave something refreshing and flavorful. The combination of lemon and blueberry with the herbal notes of the Dubrovnik Republic Gin creates a delightful harmony of tastes.
