Blueberry Martini with "Pâte de Fruit"

I swear this blueberry martini gave me back some of the life that the work week sucked out of me. This cocktail tastes like the "Maine Summer" I dream of having. Maybe even better since our "Blueberry Pâte de Fruit" is giving this beverage an extra, fruity kick. I take a sip, close my eyes and I feel like I'm drifting into a bliss-filled blueberry haze. Or maybe I am just nodding off from exhaustion. Either way I am happy about it. 

THE DETAILS:

Made with fresh lime juice, blueberry vodka, and (a personal favorite) elderflower liqueur, this tart and sweet cocktail is dangerously delicious. To amp up this weeks CBD beverage we substituted our full spectrum CBD oil for one of our blueberry flavored "Pâte de Fruit" confections! This gives the cocktail an extra boost of blueberry flavor. (The longer the confection sits in this drink the better!)
