Blueberry Spiked Lemonade

Like I mentioned last week, it's been gorgeous around Denver lately.


It's amazing how much nice weather perks you up, isn't it?
And everyone else seems in a cheery mood too.

So why not cheers to the extra cheeriness with this Spiked Blueberry Lemonade
(or even with just regular blueberry lemonade) 

To make a single serving:

Take a handful of blueberries and muddle them in the bottom of a glass.
(Ideally you can use a muddler, but we just used a spoon to mash them and it worked just fine)
Then take 1 1/2 c of cold water,
 1T (or more depending on your taste) of lemon juice,
and 3T of sugar
and a shot of vodka
and combine it with the muddled blueberries.

Then shake it up until the sugar is dissolved.
You my want to strain out the blueberry seeds and skin, but we left them, and it was great!

Garnish with the leftover blueberries, and toast to Spring!
