Oh, say how much can you drink by the dawn’s early light? If you’re sipping on a Blueberry Tennessee Mule this Independence Day, I think you might be savoring the classic cocktail as long as that star-spangled banner waves over the land of the free.
While fireworks are the typical showstopper come July 4th, pitchers of Blueberry Tennessee Mules might be the real main attraction at any picnic, barbecue, or poolside romp—patriotic or not. But because it’s July, this festive take on the traditional drink adds a splash of “Happy Birthday, America!” blue to any party menu and ensures one of summer’s best berries is shining bright at all seasonal celebrations.
The blueberry mule is a drink that causes a commotion and ignites hoopla like that first sparkler at dusk. And it’s not just because of that extra kick from the whiskey. The mixture of blueberries and lime is as refreshing as it is sweet and will have anyone singing, “It’s a party in the USA!” in the after hours of backyard clambakes and good ol’ fashioned cookouts.
You can even take this drink from one to fun by adding in cool garnishes, like red, white, and blue edible glitter; your-favorite-state-shaped ice cubes; or tiny American flags.
To our friends up north and down south (Hi, Canada and Mexico!), the blueberry mule is just as much for you whether you love America with the same gusto as us Yankees or not, so raise your glass to the unofficial drink of summer…and to freedom!
