Mixology Monday: Vodka is Your Friend

Felicia claims that vodka is your friend. Now typically this is not a statement I would make, but if Felicia says it is so, then it must be so. After all, Felicia has never lied to me. At least not recently anyway. So for this Mixology Monday we will all humor her and say nice things about vodka. My drink of choice representing the category of this defamed spirit is *cough* flavored *cough* vodka—Stolichnaya Blueberi in particular (yea, spelled just like that.) One of my favorite summer beverages is in fact, a Vodka Collins made with Stoli. I am not ashamed.

Blueberry Collins

1.5 oz Stoli blueberry flavored vodka
½ oz fresh lemon juice
simple syrup, to taste
soda/seltzer water

Fill a Collins glass (it’s the tall, narrow one) with ice and add vodka, lemon, and simple. Top with soda and stir gently. Garnish with a cherry and slice of lemon.

Note: If you're using a sweeter lemon such as Meyer, you'll want to add more juice.

Make sure to visit Felicia’s Speakeasy blog and the Mixology Monday homepage.
