Vodka Lemon Blueberry Hemp Honey Soda
- 12 ounces fresh or frozen blueberries
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup water
- ¼ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 to 2 teaspoons Kitchen Toke Hemp Honey
- 1 shot vodka
- 10 ounces lemon-flavored sparkling water, chilled
- 1 lemon wedge, for garnish
In a medium-sized saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring often.
Cool, add lemon juice and puree until smooth. Push through a fine-mesh strainer, if desired. Refrigerate for up to two weeks.
To make a soda, place 1/4 cup blueberry-lemon syrup in a tall glass and stir in hemp honey followed by vodka. Slowly add soda and garnish with lemon wedge.
Add ice before the soda if desired. Makes 1 soda, plus extra syrup for about 6 more.
For an indulgent version, add 1 to 2 tablespoons coconut cream to the lemon blueberry hemp honey mixture. For a fun, warm-weather treat, add a scoop of blueberry passionfruit sorbetto and omit ice.
