Blueberry Sage Spritzers are made for lazy days sitting on the front porch!
Happy December 5th everyone! For those of you who don’t know, today is the anniversary of the day prohibition was repealed. Hallelujah for that! Maybe it’s because my husband is in the liquor industry and this means he has a job, or just because I’m so fond of all different kinds of alcohol, but today is a day to celebrate!
I couldn’t think of anything better than going a little old and a little outlaw with a simple cocktail that’s pretty kick ass. Mike brought home a couple jars of Junior Johnson’s Blueberry Midnight Moon. OMG kids. This moonshine is great. Don’t let the 100 proof label scare you. It smells like blueberries. Like real blueberries, cause they’re totally in there. Organic, locally sourced beautiful blueberries giving this moonshine the most amazing smell and taste. A big puffy heart to the Junior Johnson team for this one!
The wheels just started turning, I couldn’t just let this moonshine go to waste as shots! (nothing against shots, but we like to be grown up sometimes.) We were trying to come up with something different, and then it hit me. Sage! Mike threw some moonshine over ice, and it did wonders for the harshness vs. straight out of the jar. Smash all those ideas together and you get yourself a Blueberry Sage Spritzer!It’s light. It’s refreshing. And it has enough alcohol to sneak up on you and kick your butt a little. It’s totally a party drink, or you can sip them all day on the porch. I’d never tell you how to drink your booze. Sláinte.
