“In this cocktail, we infuse Doc Porter’s vodka with blueberries from King’s Drive Farmers Market in Myers Park. Doc Porter’s is a grain-to-glass distillery in Charlotte. They harvest all their grain from a farm in Marshville, then send their spent mash to a local cattle farmer. We play around a lot with lemonade in the summer, and we do a lot with herbs behind the bar, so thyme lemonade just kind of evolved. It’s a super refreshing drink that reflects the peak of summer.” Brian Lorusso, Dogwood Southern Table & Bar, CharlotteDoc’s Blueberry-Thyme Lemonade2 ounces blueberry-infused Doc Porter’s vodka* 3 ounces thyme lemonade*2 dashes lemon bitters*Blueberry-infused vodkaFreeze 2 pints of blueberries overnight.
