This might shock my regular readers…and my friends and family too, but I made a mocktail! No, I’m not going dry but I needed something for adults and teens and this Blueberry Lemonade Spritzer was perfect.

Going from Mocktail to Cocktail is easy enough; I knew that adding a splash of vodka would satisfy the adults. But the kids who used to come over and get juice boxes when they were five are all fourteen now and I thought I would make a beverage to serve everyone; no more delineation between adults and kids.

It’s not that different from homemade lemonade. Instead of a simple syrup made with water and sugar, this one is made with blueberry juice and sugar. The two are warmed until the berries pop and the juice further expressed by pressing the soft berries through a sieve.

After that it’s simply adding the syrup to fresh squeezed lemon juice and some sparkling water and voila…Blueberry Lemonade Spritzer!

In Colorado, Spring is iffy…one day it’s 75° and the next day it’s a blizzard, so I felt blessed that I could sneak in a quick get together on a nice day last weekend…honestly there is snow outside again now!

I love having neighbors over on my deck; I’m the only one with a covered porch and I’ve included a few things to make it more private too; like a privacy fence on the deck between my porch and the neighbors yard.

Which protects my bar. A bar I won from BLAKE SHELTON! Yep Blake did a contest, and doggone it, my New England Bloody Mary won! I’m glad I had the room because it is so perfect for summer entertaining!
