I wasn't actually very well over the weekend, and feverishly slept through the second half of the AFL Grand Final. When I woke up, I couldn't believe that the game had ended in a draw. Who would have thought it?
But if I had been feeling better, on Sunday I would have celebrated the lovely warm weather by mixing up one of my recently invented concoctions: a blueberry gin and tonic, with a slice of lemon.
The photo doesn't do it justice.
- 50mL (one standard measure) of Bombay Sapphire gin
- Tonic water
- Ice cubes
- Wedge of lemon
- Small handful of frozen blueberries (around 5 per glass)
Rub the wedge of lemon around the rim of your glass.
Pour your measure of gin over the ice cubes.
Drop in the frozen blueberries.
Top the glass up with tonic.
Add the wedge of lemon to the glass.
Don't stir: instead, let the mixture rest for a moment or two before serving. The blueberries will start to colour the water a muted purple.
Enjoy while sitting in the sunshine, planning your social calendar for the warmer months that are approaching.
