The Blueberry Mint Fizz cocktail was invented by a bartender at the Occidental Hotel in San Francisco, California in 1800s. Its popularity spread throughout the United States during Prohibition.
It is a popular summer cocktail that consists of gin, blue curacao, fresh lime juice, sugar syrup and club soda. It often contains a splash of pineapple juice as well as garnished with mint leaves and blueberries on top.
