Champagne + rum = one light and refreshing cocktail that you have to try!
Cohl and I have a weekly date night. Normally, every Thursday night, we head on over to a local restaurant and sit outside on this huge patio overlooking the most beautiful part of Austin… Barton Creek Greenbelt.
Have you been to Austin, TX before?
If so, did you get to experience the Greenbelt when it was full of water?
If you have not gotten to experience this, you have got to come visit! And when you do… make sure you let me know so we can meet you there!
Anyways, back to this blueberry champagne cocktail! Most times we enjoy what our go-to date night spot calls a Texican. It is essentially a margarita but in shaker form. Instead of waiting for someone else to fix us a drink, I decided to get a little crafty in the kitchen. Champagne is by far the most wonderfully bubbly and refreshing alcoholic beverage on the planet… am I right? Why not make it even more light and refreshing by adding a bit of fruity blueberries to the mix?!
Here is what goes into this Blueberry Champagne Cocktail:
- Blueberries, duh
- Champagne, duh
- Rum, gotta add a bit of a kick!
- A little sugar, mint and fresh lime juice.
It is like sipping on an adult version of sparkling blueberry limeade!
This blueberry cocktail drink is meant to be something quick, simple and refreshing that you can throw together for an impressive drink.
Here are some substitutions you can make for this blueberry champagne cocktail:
- Use frozen blueberries instead of fresh.
- Simply heat up the blueberries until they start to burst.
- Use any flavor of rum you would like.
- Coconut rum was used in this recipe but regular rum will work great, too!
- Not feeling the blueberries?
- Feel free to substitute strawberries or even raspberries. But take note, the raspberries will have a lot of tiny seeds in the drink if it is not strained!
