The blueberry smash cocktail is made with fresh blueberries, lemon juice, jam, thyme, and gin, topped off with a splash of ginger ale – making it refreshing and bursting with summer flavors!
Blueberries – the fresher the better, but frozen works too
Thyme – only fresh works here
Lemon – use fresh lemon juice
Blueberry jam – adds a hint of sweetness
Gin – use your favorite; I prefer Bombay Sapphire
Ginger ale – adds a little carbonation
- Place blueberries, lemon juice, and thyme in a cocktail shaker. Muddle to release the juices.
- Add the gin and jam, stirring to combine.
- Fill one glass 2/3 full with cocktail mixture and ice (strain if you would like).
- Top with ginger ale, and add a little thyme sprig and blueberry garnish.
