Lemon Blueberry Vodka Spritzer

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 Lemon Blueberry Vodka Spritzer 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!

The Ingredients

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.

The Process

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. First, I added a thin slice of lemon, a few blueberries, and some ice cubes to my glasses. Then I poured the vodka and honey simple syrup and topped it up with the lemon sparkling water. A sprig of rosemary finished off the garnishes. Easy peasy and it made a beautiful drink if I do say so myself!

Clear & Accurate Directions
Appearance
Taste
Blueberry and lemon pair well in desserts AND cocktails! This drink is crisp and refreshing and not too sweet. Yes, you do get some sweetness from the blueberry vodka and honey simple syrup, but the lemon sparkling water balances it out well (you can squeeze a bit of lemon into it to help diffuse the sweetness). The only potential drawback is you can't taste the alcohol, so be careful with this one! It's easy to drink it quickly because it tastes so good!
