BLUEBERRY VINEGAR SHRUB COCKTAIL

http://themartinidiva.blogspot.com/2014/06/vinegar-shrubs-for-cocktails-mocktails.html

A while back I made a whole refrigerator shelf full of Drinking Vinegars just to use in cocktails.  The one that really rocked my world was the Blueberry Shrub.  I've used that not only in cocktails but in mocktails and salad dressings and even as a digestif!  However my favorite way to use it is with a little bourbon:

BLUEBERRY VINEGAR SHRUB COCKTAIL

2 Oz. Nice Aged Kentucky Bourbon
2 Oz. Blueberry Vinegar Shrub
Splash of Soda
Mint Leaves
Sprig of Mint for Garnish

Pour the blueberry shrub and a few mint leaves into the bottom of your glass and muddle well. Fill your glass with ice then pour on the bourbon and the splash of soda and gently stir the cocktail until the glass frosts over.  Garnish with a fresh sprig of mint and enjoy!

To your health!

COFFEE COCKTAILS



I'm pretty into coffee. I love to wake up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee beans, I can't truly motivate without my foamy morning lattes, I adore a nice espresso in the late afternoon and I can have a coffee cocktail at any point in the day. Good thing coffee is good for you, right?

Thank goodness for Kaldi, the goatherd who discovered the lovely benefits of coffee beans! Bless his little goat wrangling heart! How would we ever get up and at it without our beloved, aromatic caffeine fix?

Of course, I can happily add booze to all my java interludes and below are the many recipes I've posted featuring versions of my favorite high octane, high proof coffee breaks.
