Starting off my weekend with a little rest, relaxation and this stress-relieving, antioxidant-rich cocktail. This cooling, calming drink features vibrant blueberries for their free-radical neutralizing anthocyanins, and the anxiety-reducing, mood-balancing power of linden flowers. And whiskey. ?
- 2 oz blueberry-infused whiskey
- 1 oz linden flower syrup
- 1 oz lemon juice
- A handful of blueberries
- Several mint leaves
? Muddle berries in the serving glass, top with crushed ice. Add remaining ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake to chill, strain over crushed ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a few pretty berries.
? Linden Flower Syrup
