Midnight Frolic Fizz


I picked up a bottle of Chartreuse this week and started looking for recipes. There were a lot of intriguing ones, but I found one that screamed "Me, me, me, me, me!"

First, it used fresh blueberries and we still have a bounty from our trip to pick blueberries at High Ground Organics last weekend.


Second, it has an awesome name - Midnight Frolic. I did adapt it into a fizz because it was waaaayy to potent for me otherwise. Oh, and I have to share a funny exchange I had with my husband.

C: Do you feel like a Midnight Frolic?
J: Okay. What time is it now?
C: No, it's a cocktail.
J: Oh, okay.

Ingredients for 2 cocktails
4 oz blueberry-fennel-thyme infused gin
2 oz Chartreuse
4 oz sparkling water
fresh blueberries

Muddle blueberries in the bottom of a wide-mouth mason jar. Add ice, gin, and Chartreuse. Shake to combine. Strain into small glasses and top each cocktail with 1 oz of sparkling water. Garnish, if you wish, with a couple more fresh blueberries.

Cheers!
