And it’s just my speed: a mocktail. :)

Here’s the recipe: 

Muddle about 5 blueberries and a sprig of rosemary with an ounce of simple syrup. Add an ounce of freshly squeezed lemon juice and ice; shake. Strain into a glass, add fizzy water (got a SodaStream? Use that puppy.), ice, and garnish with fresh berries and a sprig.

I suppose you could add a little rum or something, but it’s yummy just like this, too.

P.S. If you’re enjoying this outside on your patio at dusk, rub your hands with some extra rosemary and then rub your arms all over (and maybe your legs – hope you have a lot of rosemary). It helps keep the mosquitos away. Weirdly true.
