A great spring or summer refresher blueberry lemonade cocktail!
As we inch ever closer to Spring, we are always looking for those perfect cocktails for an afternoon enjoying the beautiful weather on the patio. One thing we always enjoy is a nice glass of lemonade, especially the homemade style made from fresh squeezed lemons. So this one will be a perfect summer lemonade with blueberries and vodka.

Lemonade with Blueberries
Fresh squeezed lemonade is one of our boys favorite treats we often get while visiting the Omaha Farmer’s Market, and the stand that we often visit serves their lemonade with fresh fruit squeezed in along with the fresh lemons.
Blueberry Basil Lemonade
We recently had a nice blueberry lemonade which inspired the basis for this blueberry lemonade cocktail! We love the flavors in this one, and if you are looking for more summer cocktails, may we suggest this Tropical Rum Punch?
Basil Simple Syrup
We started out with gin, which goes really well with lemons. We squeezed some lemons, and then added in some basil infused simple syrup to sweeten up the mix. Fresh blueberries adds a sweet fruitiness that balances out the tart of the lemons.
The basil flavor brings an herbal spiciness that pulls the botanical flavors of the gin into the forefront, adding a layer of complexity to the drink that reminds you that this isn’t your kiddie lemonade with blueberries!
