belated celebration. [vodka spritzer w. strawberry & blueberry ice cubes]

July 8th, 2014 by | comments


I know I’m late to post this festive Fourth of July cocktail, but the drink would be delicious any time of the year! The strawberry and blueberry ice cubes bring an otherwise boring and colorless drink to life. If you’re not a strawberry or blueberry fan, you can of course replace them with raspberries, blackberries, grapes, etc.

vodka spritzer w. strawberry & blueberry ice cubes
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
  • 2 oz. Grey Goose vodka
  • 6 oz. soda water
  • 2-3 strawberry ice cubes (1 strawberry in each ice cube)
  • 2-3 blueberry ice cubes (3 blueberries in each ice cube)
  1. Hull strawberries then slice in ¼-inch slices. Place one strawberry slice in each hole of ice cube tray (I didn't use the end pieces of the strawberry), then fill with water. In a separate ice cube tray, fill each hole with three blueberries, then fill with water. Freeze strawberry and blueberry ice cubes until frozen, 2-3 hours.
  2. To prepare drink: Place 2-3 strawberry ice cubes and 2-3 blueberry ice cubes in glass, then fill with vodka and soda water. Garnish with fresh strawberries and blueberries, if desired.
