There's nothing quite like a glass of cold lemonade on a hot summer day. Unless it's a glass of cold Blueberry Vodka Lemonade! This summer cocktail is the perfect balance of tart and sweet and can also easily be made into a blueberry lemonade mocktail.
In a shaker filled with ice, combine lemon juice, water, blueberry simple syrup, and vodka. Shake well.
Pour cocktail into two glasses filled with ice. Garnish with additional blueberries and a lemon wedge.
Blueberry Simple Syrup
Put sugar, water, and blueberries in a medium-size saucepan and bring mixture to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes, until the mixture thickens.
Strain the mixture into a bowl, being sure to press down on the berries to extract as much juice as possible. Keep syrup in bowl or pour into a mason jar and place in fridge to cool completely before using.
Blueberry simple syrup recipe should make about 6 cocktails.
