Brûléed Blueberry Moscow Mule

Chef Jason K. Morse, CEC, ©5280 Culinary, LLC


Light, refreshing and full of flavor, these blueberry Moscow mules are a fun take on a classic cocktail. Designed by a chef, the bruleed blueberries as a sweet twist to a traditional Moscow Mule.



  • 2 teaspoons brûléed dried sweetened blueberries, about 6-8 blueberries
  • 3/4 cup ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1.5 ounces blueberry flavored vodka
  • Ginger Beer
  • 1 lime wedge for garnish


Blueberry Brulee Instructions

  1. Using a crème brulee torch, slowly torch dried blueberries until the sugar starts to caramelize and smolder.
  2. Toss the blueberries and torch again until mostly all blueberries are brûléed. Let cool.
  3. Please note: If you do not have a brûlée torch, the same process can be done very carefully using your oven broiler and cookie sheet pan, be sure to use oven mitts to rotate the cookie sheet pan. Once done, allow to cool and then garnish in your cocktail.

Cocktail Instructions

  1. Sugar the rim of the copper mug or glass.
  2. Fill glass or copper mug ¾ of the way with ice cubes.
  3. Add lime juice, half of brûléed blueberries and vodka.
  4. Top off with ginger beer.
  5. Garnish with lime wedge and remaining brûléed blueberries.
