Blueberry Lemonade 4th of July Cocktail

The holiday of hot dogs, lake time and patriotism is here. Time to let the firecrackers rip. I wish I were in Michigan’s U.P. with my family as tradition dictates, but the untimely mid-week landing of the 4th prevents such an excursion this year.

If you’re not spending the week partying and pontooning, ensure you take at least a few hours Wednesday to salute the land of the free. In addition to wearing some kind of star-spangled get-up, I’ll be toasting our nation with a festive drink.    

This blueberry lemonade cocktail is delicious year-round, but the components make it particularly relevant for Independence Day. Nostalgically sweet lemonade is mixed with vodka in the holiday’s traditional blueberry flavor for a no-fuss prep you’ll surely repeat. Garnish your glass with a few berries and mint leaves for an instantly festive feel. Happy birthday, America!
