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.
