All the cocktails on Lynn Houses’ creative menu at Graham Elliot are named after old songs; even without its gin and violet liqueur, the Blueberry Hill is quite a thrill.


  • 4 fresh or frozen blackberries, thawed and smashed
  • 2 leaves basil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar, divided use
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • splash club soda
  • 2 tablespoons fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed and smashed
  • 2 whole blueberries, for garnish


  1. In a mixing glass, add the blackberries, basil and 1 teaspoon sugar and muddle together until the fruit is a fragrant pulp.
  2. Add the simple syrup, lime juice and club soda and stir.
  3. Put a mound of crushed ice in a wide cocktail glass like a rocks glass or an old fashioned champagne coupe or footed dessert glass.
  4. Drizzle the blackberry, basil and lime mixture around the mound of ice.
  5. Mix the remaining teaspoon sugar with the smashed blueberries.
  6. Spoon onto the top of the ice mound, garnish with the whole blueberries and serve.
