Cocktail Wednesday - Blueberry Lemon Drop

This week's drink is the blueberry lemon drop.  Recipe from here.

  • 2 ounces blueberry vodka
  • 1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 4-5 fresh, organic blueberries
  • Lemon wheel or blueberries for garnish
  • Simple syrup to taste

first I muddled the blueberries in the shaker with the lemon juice.  I don't have a muddler so I just mushed up the berries as best I could.  Then I added ice and vodka and simple syrup (initially I used half a shot, but increased it to a full shot because I like sweet stuff) and shook until the shaker was too cold.

The problem I have with the shaker method is that I only seem to be able to make 1-2 drinks at a time and there are usually 4-5 of us. (whine, whine, whine).

We used plain vodka because I didn't want to buy yet another vodka, and I thought it turned out really nice.

Anyway, another successful drink, definitely worth having again.

Join us next week for a Peach Blow Fizz, recipe from here.

I am not a huge mixed drink fan but I do like lemon drops. I also like them with a shot of limoncello
