Blueberry Smash

    Yesterday may have been National Tequila Day, but in our house we are trying to come up with vodka cocktails to make because we have way too much in our liquor cabinet.  So the other day while I made dinner, Kevin prepared some pre-dinner cocktails using this recipe he found, and they were so delicious.  Of course if you ask me, put St Germain in anything and you can't go wrong.  So here is your quick cocktail recipe of the day.

vodka cocktail

Recipe via Bon Appetit Magazine Online 

2 lemons, sliced into rounds

2 limes, sliced into rounds
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup (loosely packed) fresh mint leaves plus sprigs for garnish
1 1/2 cups vodka
3/4 cup St Germain (elderflower liqueur)


Using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, coarsely mash lemon and lime slices, blueberries, and mint leaves in a large pitcher. Stir in vodka, St-Germain, and 2 cups of ice cubes.

Divide drink among highball glasses; top with more ice cubes. Garnish each drink with a mint sprig. Enjoy!
