Tart and sweet blueberry vodka lemonade will refresh you on the hottest of days!
I know it’s only Thursday, but I’m totally going to make your weekend with this blueberry vodka lemonade recipe. It’s easy, quick and will quench your summertime thirst.
I fell in love with this lemonade after trying something similar at a Mexican restaurant a few years ago. The ultra chatty waiter told me everything that went into this drink, which was perfect because then I was able to recreate it as soon as I got home. It’s been a favorite drink ever since.
Like all good drinks, this vodka lemonade starts with lots of fresh mint. Place mint, fresh and plump blueberries and sugar in a shaker and “muddle” it with a spoon. This means you are going to take a wooden spoon and and pound it into the bottom of your shaker. You want the spoon to help the sugar break down the mint and the blueberries so that their natural juices and oils will be released, which is key to the flavor of this lemonade. Add blueberry flavored vodka to your shaker along with some ice and shake the daylights out of it. Divide the mixture among two tall glasses and top with lemonade. Add more fresh blueberries and mint then bottoms up!
This vodka lemonade is crisp, sweet and refreshing. I do have to warn you, just like these Key Lime Vodka Collins or these Lemonade Moscow Mules, this cocktail is one of those drinks that hides the alcohol really well. You start with one, then suck down another and before you know it you are down for the count. Er, maybe that’s just me??? Regardless, this is the quintessential summertime drink!
