Several weeks ago, I showed you how to make Blueberry Infused Gin. Today’s recipe, the Blueberry Hill, features this infused gin mixed with Dimmi, blueberry puree, lemon juice, simple syrup, orange bitters and an egg white. A perfect balance of sweet and tart, the Blueberry Hill has a deliciously complex flavor (provided by the Dimmi) and a crisp, light-as-air texture (via the egg white). If you are unfamiliar with Dimmi (an Italian aperitif), I would highly recommend introducing yourself. Dimmi is a sweet, fragrant liqueur infused with vanilla, rhubarb, liquorice, ginseng, bitter orange, Nebbiolo grappa and peach and apricot flower blossoms. Seriously legit.
In addition to this wonderful recipe, I will also be sharing an interview with Josh Sullivan of Post Prohibition (aka, the dude who came up with this yumzo cocktail). Continue reading for the recipe and interview.
