Blueberry-Basil Vodka Tonic

Ingredients

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ⅓ cup fresh blueberries, plus extra for garnish
  • 4 large basil leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • Ice
  • Vodka
  • Tonic Water

Method

  1. Combine the sugar, water, blueberries, and basil leaves in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, and continue to boil until the blueberries have popped and the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat, transfer to a heat-proof container, and then chill until cold.
  3. To make cocktails: fill a high ball glass (or a pint Mason jar!) with ice, add in two tablespoons of the blueberry-basil syrup, followed by 1½ ounces of vodka. Fill to top with tonic water. Garnish with extra blueberries and basil leaves, if desired.
