"Here is a cocktail that highlights Blueberries, native to Maine. Beer amongst other spirits is also introduced here. Blueberry beer is preferable, but a regular beer is also just as good. This recipe was created as a result of Beach Movie Challenge - Seaside Brasserie."

For the Blueberry Syrup:


Step 1

In a medium-sized heavy-bottomed pot, combine water, brown sugar, blueberries, and lime zest. Place the pot over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat and simmer until blueberries begin to burst; about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and strain. Place the syrup back into the saucepan and add lavender, if using. Bring back to a simmer to release the flavors for approximately 8-10 minutes. Let cool. (This can be done the day prior and stored in the refrigerator). Once cooked strain and toss the lavender.

Step 2

Place the blueberries in a blender, adding some of the blueberry syrup to help it whirl (you can even add the all of the syrup if you want). The goal is to make sure blueberries have completely liquified and there is no visible lumping.

Step 3

Pour the beer into a large pitcher. Add the fresh lime juice and all the spirits. Add blueberry syrup and whirled blueberries. Stir to combine. Pour the cocktails into 4 or 6 glasses filled with ice. Garnish with fresh blueberries and lime, if you'd like. Serve and enjoy!
