Thirty miles of the coast of Cape Cod sits Nantucket—an island with beautiful beaches, stunning sunsets and cobblestone streets lined with quaint shops. It is also home to my favorite cocktail 888 Blueberry Lemonade served by none other than Cisco Brewers.
A brewery, winery and distillery all in one, Cisco is one of my go-to places while on the island. Between the live bands and summer weather, it is an atmosphere that honestly no one can resist. Islanders and visitors alike come hot off the beach to cool down with a Grey Lady brew, fresh sangria or Blueberry Lemonade cocktail.
Let me be the first to say that I haven’t had a drink at the brewery that I haven’t liked (and I have had more than I would like to admit). But something always brings me back to the Blueberry Lemonade. Probably because lemonade quenches your thirst in the hot summer days and blueberries are one of my favorite foods.
In an effort to continue serving up cocktail cupcakes, I decided to bake Lemonade Blueberry Cupcakes using Cisco’s 888 Blueberry Vodka. Light lemon cupcakes with a few Maine blueberries paired perfectly with the blueberry vodka infused buttercream. So if you are looking for a summery cupcake recipe with a little kick to it, try this recipe and if you are ever on the island you should must pay a visit to Cisco Brewers.
