Blueberry Syrup

Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. That alone is a good enough reason to include them in your diet, but their delicious sweet flavor is the best reason to include them in your beverages, both alcoholic and not.

Ingredients:

—3 cups (710 ml) water

—3 cups (366 g) blueberries, rinsed clean and any visible stems removed

—2 cups (400 g) sugar

—1 teaspoon grated or microplaned lemon zest

Directions:

1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan.

2. Add blueberries and lower heat to a simmer. Simmer berries for 10 minutes until they begin to soften.

3. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

4. Puree in blender, add lemon zest, and allow to cool to room temperature. Strain into a bowl through a fine-mesh strainer, chinoise, or through a double layer of cheesecloth to remove berry skins, lemon zest, and any stems or leaves.

5. Funnel into clean glass jars and refrigerate. This syrup keeps for up to 3 weeks.

YIELD: APPROXIMATELY 1 QUART (1 L)

Blueberry Lemonade

Berries and lemonade just scream summertime. Blueberry lemonade is refreshing and takes advantage of the bounty of the season. This recipe works brilliantly with raspberry or strawberry syrup, too. You could easily substitute raspberries or strawberries into the Blueberry Syrup recipe in the same proportions and use those syrups for berry lemonade variations.

Ingredients:

—1 1/2 cups (355 ml) Blueberry Syrup (above)

—1 1/2 cups (355 ml) fresh lemon juice

—3 cups (710 ml) water

—Garnish: Lemon wheel or skewered blueberries

Directions:

6. Combine Blueberry Syrup, lemon juice, and water in a large pitcher or container. Stir well to combine.

7. Serve over ice and garnish with a lemon wheel or skewered blueberries.

8. If you’d like to make this into Adults Only Lemonade, add a couple of ounces of citrus, raspberry, or vanilla vodka, or a citrus-forward gin like Bluecoat to your glass.

YIELD: 1 1/2 QUARTS (1.4 L)

Many folks have a book on their bookshelf, or in their kitchen, on how to make a cocktail - JUST in case you have company and they ask for a cocktail you've never heard of. I still have a 25 year-old copy of "Mr. Boston's Bar Guide", first published in 1935, somewhere. But times change and the new trend in restaurants is to have an "in house" celebrity bartender to create "unique" and "signature" drinks.

I have to say up front that I first met Katie Loeb, the author of this new "farm to bar" recipe book, years ago when we both belonged to an "adventurous dining club" which would try new restaurants. At that time, Katie was not only tending bar around Philadelphia but working as a Controller (keeping the financial records) for a restaurant. The dining club dissolved and I lost contact with Katie, but then she started making the local news as joined Amada, the first of the restaurants in Iron Chef Jose Garces' restaurant empire, as their bartender. I've followed her in the newspapers as she's moved around the city as new restaurants opened in Philly and she had a chance to try new techniques in mixing drinks - concentrating on using fresh ingredients. Now she has compiled 50 drinks, and a lot of basic information, in this 160-page hard cover spiral-bound book (it lays flat). Loaded with lots of color photos (so you can see the result of your mixing), this book will certainly appeal to the adventurous cocktail drinker, but many of the drinks - which are based on fresh fruits, spices and - yes - vegetables can be made without the alcohol.

The book starts with the "basics": the "tools" and glassware you will need to stock a basic bar and an explanation of the origins of various spirits (vodka, Gin, tequila, bourbon, etc.).

Great book for those who are trying to keep processed everything out of their diet, and yes drinks count too! Natural drink mixes made with ingredients that are easy to find and delicious too.
