Blueberry Mint Fizz Signature Drink Inspiration + Recipe

March is a multifarious month, with one foot still in winter and the other stepping gleefully toward spring. For this wedding inspiration, I chose a cooler colors like navy and slate mixed with slightly warmer, soft green accents. Such details easily suit a late winter or early spring wedding, when frosty bits are being pushed into the corners of the earth by shoots of life and greenery. And the blueberry cocktail? Well, I always love the promise of warm summer days and fresh berries that March begins to suggest. Enjoy!

Blueberry Mint Fizz Signature Drink

The blueberry fruit ice really elevates this drink, adding a pop of whimsical color and a touch of sweetness. Your caterer should be able to do this step for you ahead of time. I highly recommend it!

Directions for the Signature Wedding Cocktail

(Other than the fruit ice, your bartender can make this on an individual basis, so there is no recipe for 4 or 100.)

  • 1 1/2 oz. Smirnoff Blueberry Vodka
  • Fruit Ice cubes
  • 2 1/2 oz. Club Soda
  • 5-8 Mint Leaves
  • Blueberries

Muddle mint leaves in a cocktail of shaker. Add plain ice (not your fruit ice), Vodka, and Club Soda. Shake. Pour the cocktail over your over your fruit ice and enjoy.

Tips:

  • For a more intense blueberry flavor, muddle 5 or so fresh blueberries with the mint.
  • If you don't want to bother with the fruit ice cubes, add a splash of St. Germaine Liquor (or Agave syrup) to the vodka and club soda before shaking the cocktail.
  • Use fun shaped ice molds, such as hearts, stars, balls or something else!
  • You can make fruit ice cubes with any fruit or herb, just be careful as some fruits (like raspberries) tend to bleed when they're too ripe, turning your whole cube colored.
