It’s been a while since I’ve done a cocktail recipe here, so I thought in honor of the 4th of July I should go ahead and publish a new one. Here in Oregon we are out picking blueberries right now. We have tons of u-pick farms all around us. So, with an abundance of blueberries to use up this Blueberry Moscow mule was born! I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
