My best friend is in town this weekend, so I'm in serious entertaining mode! We both love a good cocktail and I thought it would be fun to whip one up that was a nod to the end of summer. When I think about summertime drinks, berries always come to mind. I've made a slew of strawberry cocktails over the years, but I've never made anything with blueberries. So, obviously you know where this is going...
