Your new favorite Friday fizz
One of our preferred ways to spend Friday night is to unwind after the working week by enjoying a cocktail with friends and family.
And although we’re always up for testing something new, one of our tried and true favorites of late has been a blueberry vodka spritz – it’s a great choice pretty much all year round (although it really holds its own in warmer weather) and is also on the drier side so pairs well with a cheeseboard or any other cocktail hour nibbles you might have planned.
If you’re not keen on spending the night measuring, muddling and mixing, this can all be made in advance – with the exception of adding the ice & sparkling water.
So you can put almost everything together the night before, and have it ready and waiting for the next evening – easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Blueberry lemon spritz cocktail
¼ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
¼ lemon (cut into slices or chunks) plus additional lemon for garnish
½ oz / 15ml simple syrup
1 oz / 30ml vodka
1 oz / 30ml limoncello liqueur
4 oz / 120ml soda water / sparkling water (adjust to taste)
sprig of rosemary or mint, for garnish
In a glass, muddle the blueberries, lemons and simple syrup until most of the blueberries are smashed. Stir in the vodka and limoncello.
Fill the glass with ice, and top with the sparkling water. Garnish with lemons and a sprig of rosemary.
If you find it too dry or too sweet, adjust the simple syrup accordingly.
Although we like ours with vodka and limoncello, if you don’t have limoncello available feel free to substitute with vodka.
More of a gin fan? This wold work so well with gin too – just swap out the vodka and limoncello for 2 oz of quality gin.
This is such a delicious, easy-to-drink cocktail, we hope you give it a try – it’s almost guaranteed to end up on your high-rotation drink list.
