I’ve been on a drink kick lately. I think its because it feels like its 100+ degrees out and I just want to cool off. Today, I’m sharing with you a recipe for Blueberry Lemonade Spritzers. This drink can be consumed as a non-alcoholic beverage or you can kick it up with a splash of vodka. It’s whatever you desire. Both ways taste divine!

This is the last of my three recipe series sponsored by Cost Plus World Market. Y’all know I love them. Not jut for food props, but for beautiful furniture and decor, and the glorious variety of food they offer! Every time I go shopping their I’m lost in the aisles for hours… lost in a good way! This drink is perfect for sipping on our back patio. We recently redecorated it in June and I still can’t get over how beautiful and vibrant it is. Go check out our awesome video and revamp over at Sew Woodsy (my DIY blog).

I love making the blueberry syrup for this drink. It’s add an additional layer of sweetness and flavor. By using Lorina Prestige Sparkling Soda it gives aditional flavors that you could never achieve with plain old seltzer water. The bubbles plus a light lemony taste equals pure summer goodness. So if you’re entertaining this summer or simply want to cool off, make my recipe for Blueberry Lemonade Spritzers!

  3. The color on these are beautiful! I could totally see myself sitting on a big wraparound front porch, staring out over my peach orchard and sipping on one of these beauties. Well, that is if I had a wraparound front porch and peach orchard. But now at least I can have the beautiful drink :)
