  • 1 ½ cups fresh blueberries
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups gin
  • ¾ cup lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • 2 cups club soda
  • Lemon slices (garnish)


Bring blueberries, sugar, and water to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer 15-20 minutes. Strain berry mixture into pitcher, pressing berries to release liquid, discard berries. Add gin and lemon juice. Stir. Add ice to pitcher. 

Fill glasses with ice, then ¾ of the way full with blueberry cocktail. Top with ¼ cup club soda and garnish with fresh lemon slice. Leave out the gin for a non-alcoholic, delicious treat – simply replace gin with 1 cup of water.
