Ice: Cubed and crushed ice 

Ingredients

30ml Belvedere vodka
15ml sugar syrup*
15ml lemon juice
soda water
2 spoons blueberries
2 basil leaves

 

Method  

Add vodka, sugar syrup, lemon juice, blueberries and basil to the jar and muddle (stir and squash).

Next, add two or three cubes of ice to the jar, top with soda and stir.

Finally, cap the drink with crushed ice and garnish with a basil leaf and the extra blueberries.

One of Britomart Country Club’s most popular drinks this summer, the Blueberry Smash is a stunner. If you’re more of a bar-goer than a bartender though, just head down to BCC and order one from the experts. This Saturday 7 February they’re hosting their Waitangi weekend ‘Weird Together’ party from 5pm. Featuring music from former George FM DJ Nick D, MayaVanya and People of Paris, tickets start at just $15 for earlybirders and are available from iticket.
