Signature drinks are for more than weddings. They can be created for girl’s nights, weekend brunches or holiday parties. Last year, I was on the hunt for the perfect signature drink. And I found it.
On Christmas Eve, some of my family members came to my house for an impromptu gathering of presents, appetizers and beverages.
I agreed to it at the last minute and with everything else that is going on (holiday season – I know you know what I mean) I don’t have a lot of time to play hostess.
An easy and delicious drink recipe is definitely needed and this is the one.
This lemon blueberry vodka spritzer is just what a great party needs. It is easy to make and it contains some of my favorite ingredients: lemon sparkling water, blueberry vodka, and honey simple syrup.
It’s so easy to make, in fact, that you could even turn it into a last minute party punch! If you’re looking for what to use with blueberry vodka, keep this easy drink idea recipe handy!
Lemon Blueberry Vodka Spritzer
First, mix up a batch of honey simple syrup. Making simple syrups is my favorite way to add my own touch to traditional cocktails and honey simple syrup is my #1 go-to.
It is so easy to make – just combine 1 part water and 1 part honey in a small pan over low heat until the honey dissolves and a syrup is created. Let it cool and it is ready to be added to your drinks.
Next, add a dash of fruity fun with blueberry vodka. You can infuse your own if you have time or find it at the store. I usually buy mine and keep it on hand.
Combine the honey simple syrup, blueberry vodka and some ice in a shaker to chill it and strain everything into a glass filled with ice.
Top this sweet fruity combo with sparkling water.
I used the lemon flavored sparkling water for this drink but you could also try the lime, berry or blackberry flavors. If you want to offer your guests a little variety, buy one of each flavor and let your guests choose which flavor they want.
Garnish your drinks with lemon slices, fresh blueberries and a sprig of rosemary for a fun holiday touch.
To make honey simple syrup, combine the water and honey in a small pot over medium low heat. Stir frequently until the honey dissolves, then remove from heat. Allow to cool before using. To make the cocktail, combine the blueberry vodka and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake or stir vigorously until chilled. Strain into a glass filled with ice. Top with lemon-flavored sparkling water. Garnish if desired.
