Blueberry simple syrup, fresh lemon juice, citrus soda, and vodka are all you need for this Blueberry Vodka Lemonade!

I just can’t get over how beautiful this cocktail came out – and so easy too!

Vodka, in general, is by far my favorite type of alcohol. It just mixes so well with any type of soda or juice.

I tend to lean towards using it in cocktails so the flavor of the alcohol won’t try to compete with the other flavors of the drink. And, believe me, you will want to savor this perfect cocktail to the very last sip, it is especially refreshing on a hot summer day.

I wanted to create a fun themed party for a few close friends and myself with this blueberry vodka lemonade cocktail as the signature drink.

I have always been drawn to French culture, I think this is because of their food. French cuisine played a HUGE impact on how we all cook today.

So, I mashed these two together and threw a French themed luncheon, it was so fun. And of course, everyone loved this Blueberry Vodka Lemonade!

WHAT ARE SOME SUCCESSFUL ENTERTAINING TIPS?

I want to give you all a few tips for successful entertaining. I did a French-inspired theme for my gathering with my girlfriends, here is what I served:

That’s it! It was just an afternoon gathering, so I wasn’t serving a full meal. Just a fun little catch-up session with some nibbles and my signature drink for the afternoon – Blueberry Vodka Cocktails!

Not every “party” has to be over the top. Having it in the afternoon can save a lot of time and hassle and lets you enjoy your event.

The items I made were easy to assemble, and I was able to prepare aspects of each one ahead of time.

One thing I am big on is having fresh flowers on the table. They just help make your home more inviting and livens the place up a bit.

I made sure to purchase flowers that I knew would go with the overall theme of the party. My blueberry vodka lemonade recipe is this gorgeous vibrant fuchsia color, so I got Gerber daisies to match!

CAN THIS BE MADE AHEAD?

  • I made the lemon scented stabilized whipped cream for the raspberry cups the night before. Since the whipped cream is stabilized, it will hold through the night, just whip it a touch right before assembling the cups and you’re good to go.
  • The blueberry simple syrup was made the day before as well – this is what adds all that blueberry flavor.
  • The fresh blueberries for garnishes were put in the freezer the night before.

Prepping for the gathering only took me about 20 minutes, but having that free time to spend with my friends really helped out a lot.

You can also make the cocktail ahead of time in a large pitcher. Combine the simple syrup, lemon juice, and vodka in a large pitcher, just make enough for the amount of guests you’ll have – our recipe makes 2 cocktails.

To serve, stir and pour over ice, then add the soda on top. You want to add the soda to serve so it doesn’t go flat.

ARE THERE ANY SUBSTITUTIONS?

Yes, there are a few things you can switch up with these blueberry cocktails. Here are my suggestions:

  • In place of vodka you can use a white rum or tequila. Or, instead of plain vodka, experiment with flavored vodkas such as vanilla, blueberry, or pomegranate vodka.
  • Instead of lemon-lime soda, you can use a splash of club soda or sparkling water. This will cut down on the overall sweetness of the drink, so keep that in mind.
  • Use lime juice in place of lemon

CAN I ADD ANYTHING?

Absolutely, you can run with the base recipe and make it your own. Here are some ideas:

  • Garnishes: lemon wedge, mint, fresh fruit, or wild blueberries
  • Other liquors: orange liqueur like triple sec

HOW TO STORE:

These are best made to serve or as above in a pitcher for parties.

If making in a pitcher, it will last up to 3 days. Give it a good stir before enjoying again.

DANA’S TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Use fresh blueberries for garnish, then freeze. Store-bought frozen blueberries will work in a pinch, but fresh blueberries will give your lemonade a fresher flavor.
  • Remember to make the blueberry simple syrup in advance.
  • Use a good quality vodka. This will make a big difference in the flavor of your cocktail, I love to use Pinnacle for this recipe.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavors. You can add other fruits, such as raspberries or strawberries, or you can add herbs, such as mint or basil leaves.
