Author Notes

There aren't many blueberry drinks out there in classic bartender guides. One notable exception is the blueberry tea, which actually contains no blueberry or blueberry flavored ingredients. It's one of those sleight of hand bartender concoctions that relies on the alchemy of several ingredients to morph into something seemingly completely different. Granted, a classic blueberry tea only kind-of tastes like blueberries.

While brainstorming cocktails for this project, the old phrase, "don't bring a knife to a gun fight" came to mind. Paying homage to the original recipe and adding real juice, the layers of blueberry flavor are amazing. Serving it in a snifter concentrates all of the aromas in your nose holes. This is a great winter warmer. Recipe by Eric Bemis aka pourfarmer.com —Bow Hill Blueberries
