Blueberry Gin Fizz
This Blueberry Gin Fizz with homemade blueberry syrup is the perfect fancy cocktail for dinner parties. You can even make different syrups for everyone to try.
Servings 1 serving
Blueberry Syrup (0,25l)
- 1 cup white sugar (make sure it's vegan)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest (from an organic lemon)
- 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
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.
Zero-Waste-Jam: It would be a waste to throw out the chunky blueberry bits because you can make a simple blueberry jam with it! Simply put the blueberry chunks back into the pot, add 1-2 tablespoon water and 1/4 teaspoon chia seeds and let it cook once again. You could even add more sugar for a sweeter jam (if you feel like it). Give it a good mix and fill it in a small glass jar. You can store it in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
