Make It: Blueberry Lemonade Fizz Cocktail

Oh, gosh. It’s Wednesday, which means we’re closer to the weekend, doesn’t it? We can’t wait. One of our wonderful couples will be saying We Do at the incredible Hotel Del Coronado. We have an excellent creative A team {okay, when don’t we have an excellent team?} and we are looking forward the magic, music, blooms, scrumptious food, and working with some of our favorite artists. Post-wedding we have some exciting plans, like fine-tuning some goals and projects that we can’t wait to share….oh, stay tuned!

We’ll also be reminding ourselves of our challenge we posted earlier this week: SIP. BREATHE. WRITE. PLANT. CREATE. We welcome you to do the same – find one {or all} of these activities and fulfill them throughout the week. Then press repeat.

So in honor of all that the weekend means, we’ve got quite the tasty cocktail recipe to share with you today. It’s utterly refreshing, if we do say so ourselves! A cross between summery bliss and a refreshing spring sip of wonder. Sounds perfect, right?

There’s something so tasty about cocktails with fruit. Whether the fruit is simply a garnish to a well-dressed drink or takes center stage as a main ingredient, fruit just livens up the show.

For this cocktail you’ll need: 1 can San Pellegrino Limonata {you’ll need about a half for each drink} | 1 oz. good vodka {or light rum} for each drink | fresh blueberries | fresh mint

We love little bistro glasses for making sweet drinks. They’re not only super cute, but they make the perfect demi-cocktail vessels.

Sprinkle a few blueberries into each bistro glass.

Pour your vodka into shot glasses for easy pouring and divide 1 oz. into each bistro glass.

Top with San Pellegrino Limonata {or a sparkling lemonade}

Garnish with mint leaves. There you have them. Sweet, aren’t they?

As we can see a lovely Lifestyle reader asking {we love your creativity!}, yes, you can even muddle the blueberries into the lemonade for more blueberry flavor. However, they can be a little bitter so you’d need to add a pinch or two of fine sugar to balance that out. It will also give your cocktail a unique look – it will have more of a bluish/green tint. Let us know what you think, friends! Happy cocktail hour.

    I bet my little daughter would love this (minus the vodka, of course) – she loves lemonade and blueberries and I’ve never thought to put them together.

  1. […] Add a few blueberries to the glass. Mix up the cocktail by pouring 1 oz. vodka into the glass. Cover with San Pellegrino Limonata. Garnish with the mint leaves. For extra flavor, the fruit and mint can be muddled, but it may take some practice to get the flavor and color combo right that way. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!
