Mixologist Jim Meehan has created a refreshing and flavorful cocktail that's perfect for summer sipping. His Blueberry-Lemon Verbena Smash combines the sweetness of blueberries with the herbaceous notes of lemon verbena, creating a balance of flavors that's truly delightful.

His Blueberry-Lemon Verbena Smash recipe showcases his expertise in combining flavors. The cocktail is made by muddling fresh blueberries and lemon verbena leaves in a shaker, which releases their juices and aromas. The addition of cucumber and mint gives the drink a refreshing twist, while lemon juice adds a zesty kick. The final touch of soda water gives the drink a slight effervescence that makes it even more refreshing.
