Blueberry Pie

What's better than blueberries? More blueberries. Duh!

One of my favorite fruit beers is Violet B's Blueberry brewed by Moat Mountain.   Moat Mountain uses 30 to 60 pounds of fresh blueberries per batch.  That's a lot of blueberries!

I decided to add a few more.

To this already yummy brew I added fresh blueberries, vanilla rum, and bit of gingerale. It's a burst of awesomeness. Super yummy!

It's like Blueberry pie and ice cream!

Blueberry Pie
makes 1 cocktail

Fresh Blueberries
1 Tsp Brown Sugar
1 Oz Vanilla Rum
4 Oz Ginger Ale
4 - 6 Oz Violet B (other blueberry beer not Shipyard Smashed Blueberry!)

Place a small handful of blueberries into the bottom of a tall glass. I used a Moat Mountain shaker pint, but any tall glass will do.

Sprinkle the berries with brown sugar.

Gently smush the berries and muddle with the sugar.  Leave the berries somewhat intact, don't mash them.

Fill the glass with crushed ice and then add the rum.

Pour in the ginger ale and top off with the beer.

Stir gently and enjoy!
