Blueberry Fizz Cocktail

The dog days of summer deserve a fabulous {and refreshing} signature drink.  This blueberry fizz recipe from bhg.com will fit the bill perfectly.  Lovely for a lazy Sunday, but pretty enough to serve at your next party.


2 liter bottle ginger ale, chilled
cup blueberries
lemon, thinly sliced and seeded
lime, thinly sliced and seeded
tablespoons crystallized ginger


Divide one bottle of the ginger ale between two half-gallon jars or pitchers. Add 1/2 cup of the berries, half the lemon slices, half the lime slices and 1 tablespoon of the ginger to each jar. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours. (If chilling more than 2 hours, add the lemon and lime slices only 1 to 2 hours before serving. Citrus adds a slightly bitter flavor after 2 hours.)

Just before serving, fill jars with ice. To serve, fill each glass half full with the blueberry mixture and ice; fill glass with chilled ginger ale for fizz. Makes 12 servings.
