Just Some Blueberry Lemonade

My search for the perfect blueberry cocktail continued last night when I stumbled upon a recipe for blueberry honey vodka lemonade.  That really is a mouthful, it needs a hipper and shorter name, like Blue Russian or something.  I also with with it because I have a tupperware container full of blueberry syrup burning a hole in my fridge, so I’m looking for any ay to get rid of it. And by get rid of it, I mean pour it down my gullet.

  • 4 Tablespoons Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup
  • 4 Tablespoons fresh Lemon Jucie
  • 4 ounces cold Vodka

I’d love to make blueberry honey syrup which just sounds delicious.  I took a shortcut however and simply poured in a half ounce of honey into the mix.  I know it doesn’t gel that well but I figured it would lend a tinge of that bright honey flavor.

That just looks beautiful.  It tasted great, a bit like an alcoholic cranberry or pomegranate juice, which was a good thing.  There was a honey hint in the background but I wish it would have popped a bit more — good motivator to make the syrup next time.  I took this outside on a warm evening and had a helluva time, sipping it and watching the sun go down.  A great summertime relaxer, I could see making these in bulk for a nice picnic or social gathering.
