Cocktails and Mocktails for the New Year 2022!

Violet Beauaregarde 

This cocktail has all the attitude of a competitive gum-snapping tween and all the flavor (and vivid color) of a giant exploding blueberry. It’s a special drink for days when you really want something sugary but you don’t want to load up on processed sugars. The maple syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness.

Recommended Barware –  Rocks glass or Mason jar Serves 1

  • 1⁄2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1⁄3 cup organic unsweetened blueberry juice
  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1⁄2 ounce freshly squeezed 
lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • Ice
  • 1⁄2 cup seltzer water
  • Garnish: Blueberries, 
mint leaves, or lime wheel

Muddle most of the mint leaves in a cocktail shaker. Add the blueberry juice, gin, lime juice, maple syrup, and ice and shake well for 10 seconds. Strain the contents of the shaker into an ice-filled rocks glass or Mason jar and top off with the seltzer. Garnish with blueberries and the remaining mint leaves or lime wheel and serve.

Day Drinker

This cocktail is sunshine in a glass. Loaded with the strong antioxidant vitamin C, we like to think of the Day Drinker as the perfect immunity booster when typhoid hits your house. You could tote this one to t-ball games, but bring enough for your friends . . . sports moms always covet!

  • 1/2 fresh lemon
