Bottoms Up :: Blueberry-Lemon Fizz

July 11th, 2012

blueberry_cocktail

I love when cocktails can almost be classified as health food, don’t you? Makes it just a little easier to justify seconds… which you’re going to want, after tasting this refreshing Blueberry-Lemon Fizz that I concocted yesterday (that’s brimming with antioxidant-rich berries, of course!) Don’t worry, this preggers girl only had a small sample, but my valiant taste testers confirmed that it’s a winner. I’ve been stocking up on lots of bubbly italian sodas this summer, and one of my best hostess secrets is – just by adding vodka – they become an instant party cocktail (let’s keep that between us, shall we?) I used pink grapefruit for this one, but really any fruity flavor (peach, black cherry, lemon) would work great. Fresh blueberries, a couple lemon slices and fresh mint, stirred up with a shot of vodka to release the flavors, and topped off with the super fizzy soda. So pretty, right? Keep reading for more images and the recipe…

*serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced and seeds removed
  • 4 mint sprigs
  • 4 oz vodka
  • Italian soda – whatever fruity flavor you like!

Instructions:

  1. In each of four glasses, divide blueberries, lemon and mint. Add 1 oz vodka to each glass, and stir vigorously to release the flavors. If a couple of blueberries get a bit smashed, that’ll be yummy.
  2. Fill glasses to the top with Italian soda and serve.
