Dhaliwal has created a new cocktail to ring in blueberry season, aptly named Basket Goodies for how many amazing ingredients are packed into it.
Incorporating blueberries through a syrup intensifies the blueberry flavour that easily blends with the rest of the ingredients in the cocktail.
Combine all ingredients, except Ardbeg and mint, into a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake vigorously for 7-10 seconds. Pour into an Ardbeg rinsed coupe and garnish with a mint leaf.
Combine blueberries and cold water into a small pot, bring to a simmer until blueberries start to split. Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Take pot off heat and put all contents into a blender and blend to a smooth consistency. Filter syrup through a fine strainer to remove any skins and seeds. Store syrup in the fridge and keep for up to 2 weeks.
