Blueberry Limoncellos – Lemonade can be substituted for the limoncello!
1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
3 tbsp. simple syrup (recipe below) or sugar
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup chilled limoncello liqueur or lemonade (regular or sparkling)
3/4 to 1 cup chilled club soda or sparkling water
In a blender, blend blueberries, simple syrup, and lemon juice with just enough limoncello to make a smooth slush. (For a firmer slush, pour into a small bowl and freeze for up to 2 hours.) .
Divide berry slush among 4 tall glasses (8 to 12oz. size), add equal portions limoncello; fill with club soda. Garnish with fresh berries on skewers; swizzle as you sip
Simple Syrup: Combine equal parts water and sugar. Stir over heat and bring to a boil. Cool to room temperature before using.
You can also prepare part of this recipe up to two weeks ahead of when you plan to use it. Just put the slush in a resealable freezer bag, seal, and freeze. To use, let stand at room temperature a few minutes to soften slightly.
