Enjoy this refreshing summer drink as a cocktail or non-alcoholic mocktail! (David will be demonstrating how to make in the upcoming cooking class!)

2 tablespoons fresh blueberries, plus more for topping
1 sprig of fresh thyme
juice from half of a lemon
2 ounces bourbon or gin
1 tablespoon agave nectar
club soda or soda water to top it off


  1. In a pint glass, combine blueberries, thyme, lemon juice and agave nectar. Muddle all the ingredients using a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon.
  2. Add the 2 ounces of bourbon or gin to your glass. Stir well. (For a mocktail, simply leave the bourbon or gin out).
  3. Fill the glass with ice, then top with club soda or soda water until full. Serve immediately.
