blueberry lemonade cocktail recipeThis Boozy Lemonade Blueberry Cocktail is one of my summer favorites! Refreshing and full of blueberry flavor, everyone loves it when I serve these.  The color is gorgeous too.

 

It’s easy to make your own simple syrup – just combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan over medium and stir until sugar dissolves and liquid becomes clear. Then boil the mixture for a minute or two, and allow it to cool. You can flavor your syrup with lemon by adding a few lemon wheels (seeds removed) while the syrup is cooking and then straining once it’s cool, or just buy some lemon simple syrup and skip the sugar-boiling part altogether.

We’ve made this recipe with fresh cherries too, and it’s totally delicious.  I also like it with limes – so be creative! Consider this Lemonade Blueberry Cocktail recipe a base for vodka-based experimentation.

Give my Farmer’s Daughter Cocktail recipe a try too – it’s a fresh strawberry and basil sipper that screams summertime!
