Spiked Blueberry Lemonade: Enjoy the Summer Any Season!

Fall is in full swing, but some of us might miss the fun days of summer.  Some folks are willing to do anything to get the vibes of summer back into their life without waiting until next year.  Well, you don't have to sell your soul to get that feeling back during any season.  My latest "sneak up on you" cocktail recipe will have you relaxing in a hammock in no time!




Cara's Spiked Blueberry Lemonade:

-  about 4 mint leaves, torn into pieces
-  about 1 tablespoon fresh blueberries
-  ice
-  2 shots (3 oz) blueberry vodka (I recommend Stoli)
-  3 shots (4.5oz) sweet and sour mix

Your desired serving glass should be about the size of a pint glass or water goblet (14-18oz).  Fill your glass with enough cubed ice to nearly fill the glass.  In your favorite cocktail shaker, place the same amount of ice in it.  Measure and pour liquids into the cocktail shaker.  Add torn mint leaves.  Tumble in blueberries, but make sure to squish half of them so the natural juices will release into the cocktail.  Cover your cocktail shaker and shake for about 15 seconds.  Pour, no straining, into prepared serving glass and enjoy!

Just let this cocktail take you back to the warmer seasons, bright flavors, and sunshine.  But remember, please savor the moments responsibly!
