First we made the Lemon Drop Martini. Then we went onto create a Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini. Naturally, blueberries were up next. Like always, this blueberry lemon drop martini uses fresh ingredients to create a tasty cocktail.
Blueberries are not a new ingredient around here. We love to muddle them in cocktail such as the Blueberry Lemon Cocktail. We’ve even used them in a syrup for the blueberry lavender cocktail. There really is no wrong way to use blueberries in your cocktails. Or at least not that we can think of right now.
Now, you can’t have a blueberry lemon drop martini without some lemon. For that portion of the drink, you’ll want to fresh squeeze your lemon(s). The drink is slightly tart which we rather enjoyed. If you think it needs to be sweetened, add some homemade simple syrup to taste.
