Blueberry Lemon Drop Cocktail Recipe (with Vodka)

I love lemon-based cocktails with natural flavors. Imagine a classic lemon drop martini, but with a delightful blueberry twist. That's exactly what you get with the Blueberry Lemon Drop Cocktail.

No need for fancy blueberry vodka or a cocktail shaker; just your favorite quality vodka and a simple stir will do the trick for this blueberry lemon drop recipe.

You can use either a chilled martini glass or a regular wine glass. I begin with a smooth vodka base, then add fresh lemon juice for a tangy kick. A splash of Cointreau for sweet orange flavor, plus blueberry syrup and wild blueberries for a burst of fruity goodness and that bright color.

With such simple ingredients, you'll be amazed at how delicious this pretty cocktail turns out.

So, whether you're basking in the summer heat or just craving something special, try this Blueberry Lemon Drop Cocktail. It's like sunshine in a glass, with a tasty blueberry twist, this delicious cocktail will leave a lasting impression.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (freshly squeezed, reserve lemon wedge for rim)
  • 1 tablespoon Cointreau (or triple sec)
  • 3/4 tablespoon blueberry syrup
  • blueberries (wild, frozen, for garnish)
  • sugar (for rim)

Notes

I've seen people make blueberry lemon drop martini with blueberry vodka and simple syrup, but let me tell you, using blueberry syrup and wild blueberries gives it the best natural flavor! It's like getting a taste of summer vacation in every sip.

I use wine glasses for serving, but if you have martini glasses, they'd be perfect! You can also use fresh blueberry instead of frozen wild ones if you prefer.

Please enjoy responsibly and only if you are of legal drinking age.
