Story Time

Jatin is passionate about making cold beverages or mocktails at home. He tried so many recipes using different fruits and veggies. During the summertime, he would always make some cold beverages while we have our dinner. It feels fancy and makes dinner on a hot summer day really enjoyable and romantic.

During the summer season when we get all these gorgeous berries, I feel like buying them all and eating as much as I can. I would try and make different recipes. And since we both love blueberries, we try and create many different recipes using them. We already have the recipe for granola with blueberry compote, blueberry-banana smoothie, and blueberry muffins. And now after trying this blueberry drink, I am planning to make blueberry cheesecake. What do you say?

As I always say, homemade is the best. Making this drink is extremely simple and easy and you are ensured of good quality ingredients too. So, make it at home instead of buying blueberry squash, sauce, or other juice from the stores.

What is a Mocktail?

Mocktail is a drink, a cold beverage that is made without using any alcohol. A cocktail on the other hand is a drink that requires alcohol in it. Mocktails are very popular in India since we have many people who do not prefer to consume alcohol there. That is why you can easily find different kinds of fancy mocktails there.

How to Store Homemade Blueberry Sauce?

Store the homemade blueberry sauce in a clean air-tight container. Refrigerate and use for up to 2 weeks.

Can we freeze the blueberry sauce?

Yes. Of course. When berries are in season, you can make a big batch of this sauce and store it in the freezer for months.

Can we replace fresh blueberries with frozen ones?

Fresh Blueberries are in season. That is why, it would be better to use fresh ones. But if you do not have access to fresh ones, you can surely use frozen berries.
