Beauregarde’s Breakfast Cocktail

Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory fans will recognize the name of this cocktail. In the film, an overzealous Violet Beauregarde chews some special gum resulting in her plumping up like a giant blueberry. Thus, the Beauregarde’s Breakfast Cocktail. Using Canon house-made blueberry preserves, Jamie creates a delightful brunch cocktail that celebrates that most American of spirits, Bourbon.


1 1/2 Bourbon

1/2 Amaro Monte Negro

3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

2 tsp. blueberry preserves

2 dashesBitter Truth Aromatic Bitters


Vigorously shake all ingredients with ice to ensure that the preserves are well combined.

Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Serve with blueberry pancakes.

I was going to make a blueberry aigre-doux this weekend and thought that it could be used in this recipe. Perhaps cut back on the lemon or omit it entirely. Have you ever worked with aigre-doux’s in cocktails before?
