Chilean Wisdom uses a few more unusual ingredients like pepper and fennel seeds, but all the flavours will marry together and complement the blueberries so there won't be one dominating flavour.


Blueberries 15 Medium (Chilean Blueberries used)
Fennel seeds 1 Pinch
Black pepper 2 Pinch , freshly ground
Chocolate liqueur 10 Milliliter (Creme De Cacao)
Egg white 1 Dash
Fresh lemon juice 20 Milliliter
Sugar syrup 15 Milliliter
Dry gin 50 Milliliter
Ice cubes 3 Medium
For the garnish
Fresh blueberries 3 Medium



1. Into the bottom of a shaker, put together the Chilean blueberries and fennel seeds. Using a small rolling pin, crush to break the berries down slightly.

2. Add in 2 grinds of black pepper.

3. To this add chocolate liqueur, a dash of egg white, fresh lemon juice, sugar syrup and dry gin. Shake it well (without ice).

4. Put the ice cubes in, and shake it well again.

5. Double strain the main pulp out of the drink, through the hawthorne strainer and a tea strainer as shown in the video.


6. Garnish the drink with a couple of fresh blueberries on a stick and serve chilled.
