Blueberry Lemon Vodka Fizz

If any friend of mine is looking at these photos, they’re probably pinching their eyes or squeezing their temples in a fit of hangover flashbacks. This glorious cocktail has become *the* summer drink in our household and, needless to say, people like to drink a lot of them. Or maybe I’m just super eager to top their glasses off so I can make sure they’re on my level. Whatever the case…

Every season seems to have it’s bev. Fall has us all cozied up with mulled wine and spiked ciders; in winter, we curl up with those dangerous bourbonated hot toddies; spring inspires us to revitalize and make use of floral notes (remember my Spiked Hibiscus Iced Tea?); and summer has us quenching our thirst with refreshing mixes, like this effervescent Blueberry Lemon Vodka Fizz.

This blueberry lemon vodka fizz was invented on a whim

I mean, maybe I didn’t actually invent this drink, but…

The basis of this gem was introduced to me as a Vodka Club, which was a simple blend of club soda, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and regular ol’ vodka.

But this past spring, after creating my Spiked Hibiscus Iced Tea, I was left with a large bottle of blueberry-flavored vodka in my booze cabinet.

Oh, the travesty. 

I kept excitedly opening the bottle to sniff it and shove it in my husband’s face saying, “Doesn’t this smell like blueberry muffins? Doesn’t this vodka smell like summer mornings?” (I don’t drink vodka in the morning, for the record. I was alluding to the muffins. I swear it.)

So, one evening while making vodka clubs for friends, my inner mixologist (whom I didn’t even know existed) whispered, “use the blueberry vodka.”

And then a monster was created.

It’s no secret that blueberries and lemons get along swimmingly; add to that the fact that this concoction is cooling, exhilarating, and fizzy, and you’ve got yourself a blend that was made for scorching summer days.

One of my fave things about this mix is that it isn’t sweet. I mean, you could add simple syrup if you wanted to, but if you’re like me and take a hard pass on diabetic coma-inducing drinks, stick with this recipe as is.

Switch things up with raspberries and limes

After coming up with this drink, I decided that I needed to try another blend. I swapped the blueberry vodka for raspberry vodka and the lemon juice for lime juice — and it was ah-mazing.

Since this formula of drink is so simple, it’s easy to get creative. Swap in a different fruity vodka and a different citrus fruit and see what you can come up with. If you do, definitely let me know in the comments!

  • Reply dishnthekitchen August 2, 2017 at 2:51 pm What lucky friends you have!! I noticed your photos don't include straws and that's probably a good thing! Could you imagine the damage if you were sipping these summer treats through a straw? Hmmm blueberry vodka muffins...
    • Reply Killing Thyme August 2, 2017 at 4:21 pm Funny you say that Bernice, we always use straws, LOL. (I have an adorable collection of paper straws in my kitchen at all times.) I just decided to forego the straws in this photoshoot. But yeah, you're totally right. Using straws is dangerous and we always end up getting right wrecked. If we ever hang out, I'll bring the straws! Lol <3
  • Reply Jen August 2, 2017 at 1:31 pm Love the easy factor (I approve of anything that I can do mostly with my eyes closed). As usual, your cocktail game is on point and this will definitely one to add to my ever growing list of cocktails I'll make for friends...now to find some friends.
    • Reply Killing Thyme August 3, 2017 at 1:13 pm *raises hand* I'm friends! If we lived close to one another, I think it would be dangerous, not gonna lie. Lol.
  • Reply My Kitchen Love July 31, 2017 at 2:27 pm Amazing photos Dana! I love how versatile this cocktail is ... like you said, mix it up with raspberries and lime. It's truly a perfect afternoon sipper.
    • Reply Killing Thyme August 3, 2017 at 1:15 pm Thanks, Sam! Definitely my go-to. I want to try and come up with a fall-themed vodka fizz, though cool and crisp isn't a priority in a cocktail at tat point. Maybe something apple-y :)
  • Reply Justine @ JustineCelina.com July 31, 2017 at 1:57 pm LOL... "If any friend of mine is looking at these photos, they’re probably pinching their eyes or squeezing their temples in a fit of hangover flashbacks." Sounds like parties at our place! I could easily (and happily) knock back a few of these delicious bevvies! I love the simple, clean flavour combinations and the vibrant, gorgeous colours in this post. It's always a pleasure collabing with you, Dana! Cheers to many more installments of Connecting Over Cocktails!
    • Reply Killing Thyme August 3, 2017 at 1:16 pm Like I said to Jen, I can say the same for you: if we lived close to one another, I think it would be dangerous. Lol. Dangerously awesome, nonetheless. Thanks so much, gf! I love this tradition and already can't wait for fall's collab!
  • Reply Natalie Browne July 29, 2017 at 5:58 pm This looks like my kind of summer drink. Blueberries and lemon are such a great combo and I love that it's not overly sweet.
    • Reply Killing Thyme August 3, 2017 at 1:20 pm Thanks, Natalie! I love the combo of blueberries and lemons, too. Great in desserts, and even better with vodka, lol.
  • Reply Jess July 29, 2017 at 2:46 pm Blueberry vodka - yasssss! I love the simple ingredients you've added to make cocktail perfectly refreshing for the summer! I think this would be just the perfect summer sipper poolside or lakeside and I can't wait to make them for my friends very soon! Cheers Dana!

  • Reply sugarlovespices July 28, 2017 at 1:24 pm What a great refreshing drink, Dana! Bright, not sweet, with that citrus kick, and...well...the blueberry vodka that goes so well with it :-) . We're not big drinkers, but I'm sure if you topped my glass off with this Blueberry Lemon Vodka Fizz I wouldn't mind ;-) ...
    • Reply Killing Thyme July 29, 2017 at 1:11 pm Thank you! Yessss, the blueberry vodka adds such a wonderful note to make up for no sweetness, which totally works for me. I'd be more than happy to top your glass off with one of these bad boys :)
