  2. Add in 1 oz lemon syrup and ½ oz blueberry syrup. Stir to combine. Taste and add more syrup if needed.

Notes

For the blueberry syrup:

  • Coriander has floral and citrus notes. You can’t taste it among the blueberry; however, it serves to enhance and brighten the flavor of the blueberries.
  • If you want the syrup to be thicker for pancakes or a dessert, cook for an additional 10-20 minutes until reaching desired thickness.
  • Leaving the blueberries to soak in the syrup for up to 24 hours will infuse more blueberry flavor into the syrup. Don’t leave them in the syrup for longer than 24 hours, or they will decrease how long the syrup will keep fresh in the fridge.
