Blueberry Drink Duo: My Blue Haven & Upper Cut

Close up hand holding blueberriesIn celebration of Florida Blueberry Month in April, we’ve been featuring blueberries galore on our website, social media channels and inside Élevage. Thanks to our fantastic partnership with local berry producer, Wish Farms, we’ve been able to bring you some of the freshest dishes and a few creative cocktails mixed to perfection.

We decided it didn’t make sense for us to keep these beautiful blueberry cocktails all to ourselves, so Roger McQueen, Élevage Bar Supervisor is helping you take your mixology to the next level with the recipes for two of his favorite blueberry cocktails; My Blue Haven and the Upper Cut.

Pink CocktailYou can find these drinks and other daily specials inside the Élevage Bar at Epicurean every day during Happy Hour from 3 p.m.-7 p.m. In addition to $5 specialty handcrafted cocktails, you’ll elevate your happy hour expectations with $5 Chef Chad’s choice appetizers, $5 wines by the glass and $3 beers.
