RECIPE

Oh Yeah!

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Adding cachaça and lime juice to blueberry Kool-Aid evokes a blueberry-speckled Caipirinha, while cucumber bitters add some mature nuance to the sweet mixture. You can spike the bright blue beverage right in the squeeze bottle if you own the world’s thinnest funnel or are up for syringing the mix into the vessel, or you can do as we did and lop off the top entirely. Either way, the kid-at-heart cocktail will have you exclaiming, “Oh yeah!”
