Summer Blueberry Cocktail Recipe


Summer Blueberry Cocktail Recipe

A light, refreshing drink...perfect for a hot summer day.

INGREDIENTS :


Ice
1 or 2 slices of cucumber
1 or 2 slices of orange
1 or 2 raspberries
1 or 2 sliced strawberries
10 blueberries
1 ounce blueberry infused vodka (optional) - directions below
3 ounces club soda
3 ounces lemon-lime soda

DIRECTIONS :


If you want to use the blueberry infused vodka for this recipe, it's quite easy to make. In a glass jar, add freshly washed (organic, if possible) blueberries and good quality vodka. The ratio that I use is 1/2 cup blueberries to 1 cup vodka. Slightly macerate the blueberries (squish with fork). Place jar with blueberries and vodka in the fridge for about 24 hours. Before you serve, use a fine mesh strainer to separate the liquid from the blueberries and store the infused vodka in the fridge.
In an 8 ounce tall glass, add ice. Arrange the fruit and cucumber around the ice. I like to do this so that they don't all float to the top.
Pour in the infused vodka (optional), club soda and lemon-lime soda. Stir.
