How to Make It

Why We Like It

This is a refreshing take on the classic blueberry smash, a summertime cocktail that requires you to actually smash (otherwise known as mashing or muddling) blueberries in the bottom of the glass. You might even get away with counting this as a serving of fruit this weekend, as long as you actually eat the berries when you’re done drinking it. This drink is well balanced, but not so strong you can’t sip a few over the course of Independence Day. And if you or your partygoers prefer a sweeter version, you can substitute Sprite or 7-Up for the club soda. Better yet, give them the pie and keep this for yourself.
