Berry Vodka Spritzer

December 31, 2014

Hi, friends!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday!! Mine was just fabulous…filled with lots of cuddle time (husband and cats) and binge watching Scandal on Netflix. Glorious, I tell ya!

I also got to try my hand out in the kitchen whipping up a holiday drink! This is perfect for a New Year’s Eve Party, or any occasion really. The great thing is that this drink is a low cal option too!


Berry Vodka Spritzer (makes 4)


  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 12 ounces flavored club soda (I used La Croix apple berry flavor)
  • 3/4 cup blackberries
  • ¼ cup fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup (optional)
  • Ice



Start by muddling the berries and chopped mint.


In a larger shaker, add in vodka, club soda, blackberry mint mixture, simple syrup, and ice. Shake it real good!!

Pour in a glass and serve!


Easy to throw together and will be sure to wow your guests!


Thank you to Azzurre Spirits for letting me try out their vodka! It paired with the ingredients perfectly!


*I received a bottle of Azzurre Spirits vodka for free. As always my opinions are honest and  my own.

Hope you have a happy and safe New Year!! :)
