I apologize for the lack of a WTF post yesterday; I was playing hooky and losing my body weight in sweat at the ballpark watching the Orioles lose to the Red Sox.
It was hot. Like, unnaturally hot. When I left the house last night at 11pm to pick up our pizza for dinner, it was 90°. Right now it’s 102°. Tomorrow’s projected high? 106°. DO. NOT. WANT.
Anyway…what better way to stay cool than a refreshing libation? This tasty treat is courtesy of Carrie Vibert at Poet In The Pantry. Looks and sounds delicious, but we need a snappier name for…
Blueberry Lemonade for Mamas and Papas
- ice cubes (Carrie suggests freezing blueberries in the cubes for presentation)
- 2 oz blueberry vodka (I recommend Stolichnaya’s)
- 3 oz lemonade (Store-bought is OK, I guess, but seriously: make your own. Juice of 1 lemon, 1/2-1 Tbsp. of preferred sweetener, and a pint of club soda should do it. Experiment with those ratios until you hit on something you like.)
- slice of lemon
Drop some ice cubes into your glass. Pour the blueberry vodka and lemonade over them. Stir. Garnish with a slice of lemon. Get crunk!
