Blueberry Hard Lemonade

What does muddle mean? When mixing cocktails, herbs and/or fruit are often mashed or ground--muddled--in the bottom of a glass before adding the liquid ingredients to intensify their flavors. You can muddle with a spoon or a pestle-like tool called a muddler.


  • 2 tablespoons fresh blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 fresh mint leaves
  • Ice cubes
  • 2 tablespoons gin (1 ounce)
  • 1/2 cup ginger ale or lemon-lime soda
  • Lemon wedges, blueberries on a beverage pick, fresh mint, if desired


  1. In a highball glass, muddle blueberries, lemon juice and mint.
  2. Fill glass to rim with ice cubes. Add gin. Top with ginger ale; stir gently.
