As summer begins to slow down, there’s still time to enjoy the season before returning to school or returning to the back-to-school responsibilities of adulthood. August calls for a refreshing seasonal cocktail, such as this Blueberry-Cucumber Gimlet.

There is no shortage of summer fruit to enjoy: peaches, nectarines, watermelons, etc. And though they all capture the essence of summer, I have a bias for blueberries. I associate this berry with our annual Labor Day trip to Maine – our last summer vacation. Blueberry Martinis are my choice of cocktail during this trip, but this Blueberry-Cucumber Gimlet is easier to make, and you can certainly switch up the fruit to your liking.

The slices of cooling cucumber create a refreshing base for the cocktail. Add a handful of fruit, a dash of citrus, a quick pour of simple syrup, and you’ll have a fantastic cocktail to help you slip through the rest of the summer.

    Though not specifically a gin fan, anything with cucumber and blueberry definitely gets a taste test. That combined with your beautiful pictures makes me want to mix one of these up immediately.
