1–2 teaspoons of lime juice
1 teaspoon simple syrup (can omit if you prefer)
2 ounces vodka
1 ounce St Germain
Splash of club soda or sparkling water
Place blueberries, basil leaves, lime juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Muddle all ingredients well. Add vodka and St Germain. Then add a little ice to chill the ingredients.
