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.

1/2 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.
