Yield Serves 1 (serving size: 1 1/4 cups)
Dazzle guests with this made-to-order icy beverage that couldn't be easier. This recipe was developed to go in the Magic Bullet--that inexpensive blender that whips up one drink at a time. (If you don't have one, use a regular blender; just start with 2/3 cup ice and add more as needed.) Use bagged, small-piece ice over large, hard chunks. For kids, nix the liquor.


  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 ounces dry London-style gin
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • Ice to fill cup
