Blueberry Lavender Vodka Spritzer

With a refrigerator full of Blueberries, I wanted to come up with a fun cocktail, but I remembered seeing this beautiful drink on Pinterest and went back to find it.  It was so perfect I just copied theKitchn‘s recipe.

I also used a new vodka that my husband had heard about called Tito’s.  I am not a real conissour of vodka, but this vodka has been getting great reviews.  Jim gave it a thumbs up!

Blueberry Lavender Simple Syrup Recipe

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 4 lavender sprigs (or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried food-grade lavender buds)

Combine these three ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to a low simmer and add 4 lavender sprigs (or 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried lavender) and keep on low heat for 10 minutes.

Strain pressing the blueberries to get all of their juice.
