You're jamming along playing your bluesy licks and want to add a little something to spice things up. Try adding a "flourish". A flourish is a fast musical idea that leads to a new chord change or new melodic idea. This tune has some great flourish ideas but don't stop there! As long as you have a starting and an end note you can develop your own flourishes. Don't forget to keep the expression in your playing.
