Have you ever tried anything with lemon and blueberry? They are such a perfect pairing! I often see them used together in desserts, especially cakes and cookies. Needless to say, this recipe stood out to me because the first two words in it are “lemon blueberry”. And I do love my cocktails, so the fact that the next word was “vodka” sealed the deal. Off to the liquor store!
This lemon blueberry vodka spritzer is perfect for holiday parties, weekend brunches or girl’s nights. If you are searching for a signature drink, your search is over thanks to this easy cocktail recipe!
There are only 4 required ingredients for this cocktail: blueberry flavored vodka, honey, lemon flavored sparkling water, and water. The garnishes just make it look pretty–they don’t add any flavor. I’m all for pretty cocktails, though, and this one was super easy to garnish.
I’ve never tried blueberry flavored vodka, but I chose Skyy Pacific Blueberry since their unflavored vodka has a slightly sweet taste. It has always worked well for me in sweeter drinks. I couldn’t find the specified brand of lemon sparkling water (Dasani), so I went with what I had on hand: La Croix.
There are two parts to making this cocktail: the honey simple syrup and the actual cocktail. Simple syrup is so easy to make, and I love finding new ways to flavor it! This honey version took me 5 minutes to make, and I let it cool overnight in my refrigerator.
The cocktail itself was even quicker at 3 minutes, including garnish. I quartered a thin slice of lemon and added that to my glass with a few blueberries. Then I added the ice to the glass, poured over my stirred vodka and honey simple syrup, topped with the lemon sparkling water, and stuck in a sprig of rosemary. Easy peasy and it made a beautiful drink if I do say so myself!
