FEELING BLUE

FEELING BLUE

It’s blueberry (cocktail) season.

BC’s 700 blueberry growers have started their annual harvest, so it’s time again to bask in BC’s bounty of beautiful blueberries. While you may be able to get blueberries from global growers year-round, nothing tastes quite as sweet as those grown in our own backyard. Oh. and supporting our local farmers is pretty sweet too.

To help you make the most of blueberry season (which runs until mid-September), our friends at BC Blueberries have compiled more than 100 blueberry recipes at bcblueberry.com for everything from smoothies to banana bread to BBQ sauce.

Speaking of recipes, if you’re like us and on a pre-Pride liquid diet, then you’ll appreciate this recipe for the BC Mule, a spin on the classic Moscow Mule that uses XFour Bremner’s Blueberry Vodka (which is made with local BC-grown blueberries). It’s a simple, but delicious, patio sipper for summer.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
1/4 oz lime juice (about 1/4 a lime)
2 ox XFour Bremner’s Blueberry Vodka
4 oz Ginger Beer
Fresh blueberries to garnish

DIRECTIONS:
Squeeze lime into glass, drop the lime in as well
Pour in vodka
Top with ginger beer
Garnish with fresh blueberries
Enjoy!
