Absolut Blueberry Fizz – Absolut Summer Cocktail of the Week
This cocktail just LOOKS like a day at the beach, and is the perfect refresher after a day in the sun.
ICYMI, we've teamed up with Absolut to transform your summer! Every week we're featuring a yummy cocktail using Absolut products...and even better, at the end of the summer you could win a trip to Sweden courtesy of Absolut to see Lady Gaga's artRAVE:the ArtPop Ball!
(Can't wait that long? Text 'GAGA' to 89000 right now and you could be joining us for a party on June 24 at Waters Edge in Bayville where THREE lucky winners are gonna score a pair of tickets to check out Lady Gaga on June 28th at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City!)
This week's cocktail is citrusy and refreshing with just a touch of fruit. It should really be called Absolut Beach (it's the first thing I thought of!), since there's not much blueberry OR fizz really involved, but whatever you call it, just make one to enjoy this weekend!
Your Absolut Summer on the Rocks continues with the Absolut Blueberry Fizz.
- 3 oz. Absolut Vodka
- 2 oz. lemon juice
- 1 Tbls. simple syrup
- 1 oz. blue curacao
- 4 whole blueberries (to garnish)
- 1 slice lemon (to garnish)
Pour vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup over ice in a highball glass. Gently top with blue curacao, and garnish with a slice of lemon and a handful of fresh blueberries. (If this drink is too potent as is, consider adding a bit of water or club soda. It's essentially a spiked lemonade that way!)
If you want more blueberry flavor, consider muddling a handful of blueberries with the vodka. It won't be as pretty, but it'll taste great!
