Blueberry Sour

Blueberry Sour

Blueberries are underappreciated in cocktails.  Their flavor is unique, but one thing you can always count on from blueberries is a gorgeous natural color.  In this recipe, to preserve that beautiful deep violet hue, we opted to use citric acid water instead of lemon juice.  The flavor will be nearly the same, but the citric acid is clear, whereas the lemon would be cloudy and dull the color in the blueberries.  You can get citric acid (as with most things) online in granulated form.

2 oz Roundstone Rye 80 Proof
1 oz citric water (6 tsp citric to 4½ cups of water, more or less to taste)
½ oz honey simple (1:1 honey with hot water)
½ oz blueberry simple syrup (steep blueberries in simple syrup for at least an hour, remove solids)
lemon wedge garnish

Combine the ingredients in a shaker of ice, shake, and strain into a Nick and Nora glass with ice.  Garnish with lemon.
