Yep, it’s about time we had another mocktail recipe, and just in time for the 4th of July weekend. This smooth, mellow lemonade does sport a little blue of the red, white and blue. So, let’s just call it festive.
Local friends, if you are a fan of a fun mocktail or cocktail, join me this Saturday, June 2nd from 2-4pm at World Market here in Bakersfield. I’ll be there demonstrating some fun patriotic mocktails just in time for the holiday weekend. It’s a free event, and I’d love to meet you. Let’s hang out and I’d happily help you shop! If you don’t live in Bakersfield, be sure to contact your local store, there might be a blogger hosting an event like this at yours as well!While we were in Canada, I had the yummiest bourbon vanilla lemonade at a fun sandwich shop in Edmonton. I knew it was a flavor I needed to replicate. The blueberries and vanilla add a smooth layer to a normally tart, bright flavor of lemons. The combination is a winner! This one is adult and kid tested and everyone in my house definitely approves. Blueberry Bourbon Vanilla Lemonade
- 2 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp. bourbon vanilla
- 1-2 tsp. simple syrup
- 1/2 a bottle Original Blueberry New York Seltzer
- crushed ice
In the bottom on the glass, add the lemon juice, vanilla, simple syrup, a few blueberries and stir. Add a generous amount of crushed ice. Then top with blueberry seltzer and stir once more. Garnish with a slice of lemon.
If you are local, I hope I see you this Saturday at World Market.
