Blueberry and Jalapeño Cocktail

I’m sad it’s gone, but there was a great restaurant called Rapour in Rancho Cucamonga that made excellent food and drinks. We did a series with them, and bartender Vince Hardesty showed me how to make a jalapeno and blueberry vodka cocktail called the Velvet Joyride. This is really a great cocktail recipe, so I hope you like it!
