Blueberry Spritzer

June 13, 2014


Summertime demands drinks more than any other time of year. When there is beaching to be done or lounging on the deck to be had, it should all be with a drink in hand. These blueberry spritzers are just the ticket. Made with fresh blueberry simple syrup, they are a vibrant shock of purple with a small kick of acidity from the lemon. Perfect for sipping at the beach.

1 cup blueberries

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

12 ounces seltzer water

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Combine blueberries, sugar and water in a sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium low and simmer 10 minutes until the blueberries have released their juices. Strain out the blueberries. To make the drink, combine 1/4 cup of blueberry simple syrup with lemon juice and seltzer water. Stir well and serve over ice.
