Has anyone ever given you something that left you truly inspired? Artist Mary Elizabeth shared here new hand painted peacock glasses with me recently that definitely called for this vibrant, fizzy drink recipe. Keep reading for where to find Mary's beautiful pieces along with these wild blueberry cocktails:
I love the way Mary Elizabeth says she like's to think of herself as being a guest at dinner parties around the world through her art. With these Mary hand paints each in her Chapel Hill, North Carolina studio using durable painting methods that are dish washer safe. Find the above peacock feathery high balls over here and on her etsy gift shop over here.
To go with the beautiful turquoise and blue glasses here's a sweet drink that uses a shrub (acidic syrup + fruit + brown sugar) with plenty of ice, wild Maine blueberries and a splash of rum. Oh and the fizz comes from seltzer instead of egg whites in this one. OK, let's get muddling...
Wild Blueberry Fizz
Using a shrub this sweet and tangy cocktail (or mocktail if you leave out the rum) uses wild blueberries and plenty of ice for a pretty ombre effect. Serve in a high ball glass with straws or swizzle sticks.
- 1/4 cup Wild blueberries
- 1/4 cup Blueberry syrup
- 2 Tablespoons Light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Balsamic vinegar
- Splash in each glass Rum
- 2 cups Seltzer
Using a muddler, place half of first 4 ingredients in each glass. Muddle until berries are well incorporated into the syrup and the sugar is fully dissolved.Add ice to fill glass, a splash of rum and top off each glass with seltzer water. Gently stir and sprinkle more blueberries on top
