Blueberry and lemon is a classic ingredient pairing we usually associate with baking, but spring has us craving familiar flavors without the heft of muffins, breads and scones. Our solution, the Blueberry Fizz. It's a fruity, naturally sweet beverage pretty enough for garden parties and tasty enough to feel like a treat. Pair it with white rum or vodka for an impressive at home cocktail.
Hibiscus Tea reminds me of walks in the Caribbean, stopping to sample roadside BBQ and being handed a syrupy, vivid 'house tea'. Now, years later making it in Maine as the days get longer and the sun starts to have warmth again is the ultimate nostalgic treat.
This recipe is simple and the end result is versatile. On its own the tea is bold, it brightens up any cocktail (especially good with Gin and Tonics!) and mixed with seltzer and a splash of Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar, it's the perfect base for a shrub. Cheers!
