Number five on our rainbow countdown to summer drink list is: Blueberry Lavender Bubbly. I was a little hesitant on this one, I asked the husband (Chef and food blog – Cookin’ It Easy) what I should pair with blueberry. He immediately said lavender. I am not a fan. I haven’t eaten or smelled it in any preparation that made me say yes.

Until we made this…..

Luckily, our daughter loves lavender and insists on planting it in our balcony planters. I like how it looks and always support my daughter wanting to garden. This meant I had lots of fresh lavender, to pick from.

We had frozen blueberry in our freezer from last summer and this recipe was ready to go. About 18 years ago, I didn’t like blueberries either, I guess we all grow up in stages.

Blueberry season is now one of my favourite times of the year and I stock up on the fresh ones, which I eat out of the fridge, make blueberry scones, make blueberry syrups for pancakes, make blueberry pancakes. You get it, I am now convinced, so please enjoy this blueberry lavender bubbly, I have never been so happy to be wrong.

Another simple preparation with the blender as the star of the show. I added about 30 frozen blueberries to the bottom of the blender cup, added 1 Tbsp hot water and ¼ cup of coconut milk. I added about 5 lavender flower tops. Blended until smooth and placed some in the bottom of the glass, topping it up with blueberry flavoured sparkling water. It is a naturally sweet, soothing drink. 

This recipe made three glasses:

  • 30 blueberries 
  • ¼ cup of coconut milk
  • 5 lavender tops
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • blueberry flavoured soda water

Blend smooth, add 2 oz. to the bottom of a glass and 6 oz. of blueberry flavoured sparkling water. It helps to tilt the glass to the side like you were pouring beer.
