Blueberry Simple Syrup


A special thank you to Wild Blueberries of North America for partnering with me on my recipe development for this post.


Fancy yourself a gin and tonic? How about I make you one with a wild blueberry simple syrup and garnish is with rosemary. Blueberries are not meant to be enjoyed only while in season. Wild Blueberries of North America freezes wild blueberries at their peak freshness so that they can be enjoyed year-round. Trust me, they taste amazing!


If you are looking for fun gift ideas, give the mixologist on your list my homemade wild blueberry simple syrup. It goes great with gin or as a mocktail with ginger ale and soda water. #ChooseWild
