Thirsty Thursday - Blueberry Vodka & Meyer Lemonade Spritzer

As long as I can remember, I have favored sweet and fruity cocktails like pomegranate prosecco punch or grapefruit margaritas which explains a lot of the inspiration for my recipes on this new Thirsty Thursday weekly series. So while I dont like to discriminate against any delicious cocktail I want to invest in recipes that I find appealing and believe are crowd pleasers. So without further adieu -  enter todays tasty beverage; Meyer Lemonade and Blueberry Vodka Spritzer.  Blueberry's and lemons flavors compliment each other so well its often used in a plethora of recipes why not take this fab pair and create a delicious cocktail??? I know I know,  it's not summer yet or even above 50 degrees here in Boston but this cocktail is heaven in a cute mason jar and I know you will love it! I chose meyer lemons for their sweetness instead of the traditional tart lemon and used simple syrup instead of sugar for the lemonade because in my opinion it distributes more evenly throughout the cocktail without having the sugar sink to the bottom of your glass. A special fun twist I did for this feature was the blueberry ice cubes - the night before I froze some fresh blueberries in cute bendable ice trays for garnish. Check out all the details below to recreate this cocktail in your home.
