Hemsley & Hemsley Blueberry, Lime & Lavender Cocktail Recipe
- 150 g fresh blueberries
- 6 tbsp raw honey (or more to taste)
- 1½ tsp dried lavender
- 500 ml coconut water
- 125 ml lime juice
- 250 ml vodka
- Wash the blueberries thoroughly. Pulse them with the honey and lavender in a food processor or blender with 250 ml water to make a lavender infused syrup.
- Strain the syrup into a jug using a fine sieve or piece of cheesecloth, making sure you squeeze all the goodness from the blueberry-lavender pulp. Add the coconut water, lime and vodka and stir thoroughly.
- When ready to serve, add the frozen blueberries.
- 150 g frozen blueberries
Use frozen blueberries as ice cubes and let them bob around in this pretty cocktail. Freeze them in a single layer on a baking tray.
