The flavor combination of citrus and berry makes this drink wildly tasty.
It’s garnished with fresh mint as well, which makes it even more cooling and refreshing.

Rum and club soda are flavored with blueberries. Garnished with a lime wedge and mint, it has that wonderful contrast of deep magenta, blue, and green.
The flavor doesn’t disappoint, either. It’s sweet, but not overly so.
The flavor combination of the tart berries and lime and cooling mint makes for a truly refreshing drink.

It gets bonus points for being such an easy recipe. It tastes as if you worked hard on it, but you’ll hardly work at all.
10. Blueberry Lemon Gin Rickey
A classic gin Rickey is a simple combination of bourbon and carbonated water. I’m not a huge fan of its basic flavor, which is why I like to give it a fruity twist.

Blueberry Collins is like summer in a glass.
First of all, how beautiful is its deep magenta hue? That slice of bright lemon adds a lovely pop of color, too.

If you’re looking to doll up your Prosecco, this recipe is exactly what you need.

This combination is a match made in heaven. It’s sweet, but not overwhelmingly so.
The tartness from the berries counterbalances the sweetness.
