Description: The Autumn Berry Breeze is a refreshing, vibrant cocktail that embodies the spirit of fall with its deep blueberry tones, bright citrus notes, and a subtle hint of mint. It's perfect for sipping as the leaves turn, offering a unique balance of flavors that bridge the end of summer and the start of the cooler months. Ingredients: - 2 ounces bourbon - 1 ounce fresh lemon juice - 1 ounce blueberry syrup (homemade or store-bought) - 6-8 fresh blueberries (plus more for garnish) - 5 mint leaves (plus a sprig for garnish) - 2 dashes of orange bitters - Ice - Soda water - Lemon wheel (for garnish) Instructions: 1. In a shaker, gently muddle the fresh blueberries and mint leaves to release their flavors. Be careful not to overdo it; you just want to bruise the mint and break the skins of the berries. 2. Add the bourbon, fresh lemon juice, blueberry syrup, and orange bitters to the muddled mixture. 3. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously until well-chilled. 4. Double strain the mixture into an ice-filled highball glass to remove the muddled blueberry and mint bits. 5. Top up the glass with soda water for a refreshing fizz. 6. Gently stir to combine. 7. Garnish with a skewer of fresh blueberries, a sprig of mint, and a lemon wheel on the rim. Glass: Serve in a highball glass to showcase the beautiful color and allow room for the fizzy soda. This cocktail is ideal for those crisp fall afternoons when you're looking for something to refresh the palate and complement the season's flavors. Enjoy the Autumn Berry Breeze as you watch the leaves fall and the autumn breeze whisk them away.
