It’s that time of year – and the rain has contributed to me being so blue…

Actually not talking about being soggy and wet or hearing about brides freaking out over rain on their wedding day…. {like those who didn’t hire a wedding planner}

The BUMPER crop of fresh South Jersey Blueberries is in- the HUGE amount of rain the past month or so has boosted the size and plumpness of the berries….at home I’m eating them daily and putting them in everything…

But for our brides – here’s a great summer martini to use for your wedding day….. (maybe just for the guests- let’s keep it away from your gown!)


Blueberry – Lemon Martini

1 ½ ounces –       blueberry vodka

1 ½ ounces –       vanilla vodka

1     ounce  –        lemoncello

2 Tablespoons    fresh blueberries


Muddle or crush fresh blueberries in food processor.

Fill shaker glass with ice.

Add blueberries, both vodkas and lemoncello to shaker glass.

Shake well.

Strain into a well chilled martini glass.

Float several blueberries on top as garnish.



WE love when our clients incorporate fresh, local and seasonal ingredients into any of their menu items….
