My New Obsession
Hello everyone – cheers! Oh I mean, happy Friday! Are you excited about this weekend? Shall we celebrate with something tasty? How about this Blueberry Lime Martini Cocktail?
Indeed, I am having a new obsession this summer – cocktail ideas. So far I have shared already two ideas: this Lilac Martini Vermouth Cocktail and then Raspberry Lilac Martini Cocktail. Besides this new blueberry cocktail, I will have at least 5 other ideas to share with you. That’s as of today. Most likely, I will have even more ideas (Because summer just started haha.) I hope you won’t mind!
Blueberry Lime Martini Cocktail
In the meantime, let’s enjoy this lovely Blueberry Lime Martini Cocktail. As you can see, it’s very simple yet flavourful. Fresh blueberries can sometimes taste bland and boring in recipes, but that’s not the case here. Maple syrup adds some sweetness (Honey or even simple syrup will work too) while lime juice adds the freshness.
As always, the proportions are not written in stone, so feel free to adjust this cocktail to your liking. Personally, I am not a huge fan of hard liquors and cocktail combination – I prefer sweet, barely boozy, almost a dessert-like drinks. Also, we rarely have more than two types of liquors at a time. Most often, one. But you can definitely mix different spirits (You can find guidelines on mixing them on the Internet). For instance, a little splash of gin won’t hurt here!
You can also easily adjust the ratio of maple syrup and lime juice to martini vermouth, depending on how zesty or sweet you want this cocktail. You can even skip the maple syrup, if your berries are sweet enough. This version, as noted earlier, is light and sweet, but my husband added an extra splash (a very generous splash!) of martini to his glass. No biggie! Mix, shake, try, and adjust :)
I hope you like this Blueberry Lime Martini Cocktail, and you will it a try soon! If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
Cheers to Friday and the weekend!
