Ingredients

1 1/2 ounces vodka

3/4 ounce pomegranate juice

3/4 ounce Cointreau

1/2 ounce lime juice

5 - 8 fresh blueberries

Directions

Muddle the blueberries: Place the blueberries in the bottom of a shaker or mixing glass. Cover with the pomegranate juice, then muddle the blueberries with a muddler or the back of a spoon. Smoosh them enough so that the skins break and a little juice is released, but not so much that the blueberries completely fall apart. Make the cocktail: Add the vodka, lime juice, and Cointreau. Fill with ice, cover, then shake for 30 to 45 seconds. Double strain: If using a mixing glass, place a Hawthorne strainer on top. Then, with your other hand, hold a tea strainer over a cocktail glass. Pour the drink out of the shaker or mixing glass through the tea strainer and into a cocktail glass. Enjoy!
