A refreshing, summery cocktail made with blueberries, lemons, simple syrup, vodka, and club soda. This is my most popular recipe!

Ingredients
  

Pitcher

  • 2 cup blueberries (I use frozen)
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced and de-seeded, plus more for garnish
  • 4 oz (1/2 c.) simple syrup
  • 16 oz (2 c.) 10 Torr vodka
  • 32 oz (4 c.) sparkling lemon water (or lemon Italian soda)
  • Rosemary, for garnish (optional - mint or basil would be good too!)

For a single drink...

  • 1/4 cup blueberries (I use frozen)
  • 2 slices of lemon, de-seeded (plus more for garnish)
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz 10 Torr vodka
  • 4 oz sparkling lemon water (or lemon Italian soda)
  • Sprig of rosemary, for garnish (optional - mint or basil would be good too!)

Instructions
 

Pitcher

  • In a pitcher, muddle the blueberries, lemons, and simple syrup until the lemons release their oils and about half of the blueberries are smashed. (If you don't have a large muddler, a big wooden spoon works great!). Stir in the vodka. Cover and place in the fridge until you are ready to serve (the longer it sits, the more the flavors will infuse).
  • Right before serving, stir in the sparkling lemon water (or lemon Italian soda). Pour over ice and garnish with lemons and sprigs of rosemary. Tip: I like to twist the rosemary a bit to release their oils. This will make 8 small drinks or 4 big ones!

For a single drink...

  • In a glass, muddle the blueberries, lemons, and simple syrup until the lemons release their oils and about half of the blueberries are smashed. Stir in the vodka. Fill the glass with ice, and top with the sparkling lemon water. Garnish with lemons and a sprig of rosemary. Tip: I like to twist the rosemary a bit to release their oils. Enjoy!

Notes

Blueberry lemon vodka spritzes can be made a day before, just leave out the sparkling water (or Italian soda) until right before you are ready to serve!
We like drier drinks, so we prefer sparkling lemon water to top off the spritz. If you like your drinks on the sweeter side, use lemon Italian soda, and start with half of the simple syrup. Taste, and add more simple syrup as necessary.
