INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups water

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • ½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

  • 3 ounces vodka

  • 2 ounces triple sec

  • ½ cup strawberries

  • ¾ cup blueberries

  • 1 tablespoon mint leaves

  • 1 ounce sparkling water (per glass), optional

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. To make the simple syrup add water and sugar to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer until sugar dissolves. Take about 2 minutes. Take off the heat and allow to cool completely. (Place in the freezer and in a different container to cool quicker)

  2. Add cooled simple syrup, lemon juice, vodka, triple sec, strawberries, blueberries and mint to a large pitcher. Stir to combine.

  3. Pour into glasses. Top each glass with 1 ounce of sparkling water per glass. This is optional but gives the lemonade a nice fizz. Add the sparkling water to the glass not the pitcher to ensure the drink does not go flat. Enjoy!
