Purse Strings

This is the second drink I threw together a couple weeks ago for TDN "Mint."  The picture is not as well done as I usually try to do, but I was winging this one so it is what is it.  I do enjoy the silhouette of Halley lounging in the background though, so that somewhat makes up for my sloppiness.  The drink itself is quite refreshing.
Purse Strings
  • 1½ oz Pisco
  • ½ oz Velvet Falernum
  • ¾ oz lemon juice (or lime*)
  • ½ oz simple syrup
  • 1 dash Angostura
  • Mint
  • ~6 blueberries
  • soda
muddle mint and berries with simple and bitters, add rest and shake, dump into glass, top with soda, mint sprig garnish
As for the name, don't you worry about that.  It arose from a long chain of non sequiturs that I seized upon when at a loss for a name.  It wouldn't even make sense to me if I tried to explain it.

*UPDATE: I accidentally made this with lime this weekend for guests over the 4th, and it went over well, so perhaps lime is better than lemon.  Maybe it's like the pisco sour where people debate which to use, but both work in that too.
