Blueberry Lemon Gin Fizz

Blueberry Syrup
▢ 1 cup white sugar
▢ 1/2 cup water
▢ 1 tablespoon lemon zest
▢ 1 cup frozen blueberries

Ingredients for the cocktail (per glass)
▢ 2 ice cubes
▢ 3 cl gin *
▢ 2/3 cup sparkling water
▢ 3 cl blueberry syrup
▢ fresh blueberries and lemon slices for garnish


Blueberry Syrup
Pour the sugar and water in a medium sized pot and bring it to a boil on medium to high heat until the sugar has dissolved. Add the lemon zest and frozen blueberries and let it cook for about 10 minutes. Mash the blueberries with a fork or a potato masher.
Once the mixture thickens a bit, pour the blueberry syrup carefully through a sieve to remove blueberry chunks. Then you can fill the blueberry syrup in a clean glass bottle.

Blueberry Gin Fizz
For each Blueberry Gin Fizz, add two ice cubes, gin, sparkling water and the blueberry syrup to a glass. Garnish with fresh blueberries and lemon slices and enjoy (responsibly)!

Storage: You can keep the blueberry syrup in a glass bottle in the fridge for about 1 week.
