blueberry lemon fizz

blueberry lemon fizz
Maybe it's because I've been spending my spare time rewatching old episodes of 30 Rock, maybe it's just because it's summer and it seems to go, but lately I've been really craving everything lemon. Therefore I thought it would only be appropriate to try my hand at a lemon flavored cocktail. It didn't take long to find one that sounded good, a blueberry lemon fizz. The recipe however wasn't as simple as I wanted it to be, and by that I mean that it included ingredients that were not readily available in my kitchen, so I altered it and sort of made up my own version. It came out pretty good, I was certainly pleased with it, and it can technically still be called a "fizz" because it has both lemon and carbonation. You also can't taste the vodka which is dangerous because it is delicious, if you don't mind my saying. I will definitely be making these again, soon.

Have a wonderful weekend and please let me know if you end up making this!
