Our dearest Melissa has done it again with this blueberry basil concoction. The red & blue combination makes it all sorts of perfect for this holiday weekend. But let's be honest, any ol' day of the week will do. There's something about a champagne flute filled to the brim with bubbles that just makes you feel fancy. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with imbibing in a little fancy now and again. In fact, it's encouraged.

NOTE: Don't be alarmed if your blueberries float, then sink and then float again, this is the fun part! Adding blueberries to beer or champagne creates a negative buoyancy where the bubbles attach to the blueberries to lift them up. When the bubbles pop the berry is heavier than the liquid once more.
