Blueberry Citrus Smash cocktail with fresh fruits and vodka

Making smash cocktails is a great way to get rid of fruit that is just on the edge of turning. Hey, can’t be wasting fruits now when you can just put them in a cocktail. This blueberry citrus smash uses blueberries, lime, and blood orange. It seems like during this corona virus quarantine I’ve severely increased the amount of cocktails I make.

The steps for this are really easy, and you don’t really need any tools. In a rocks glass I added the fruit and muddled it with the handle of a rolling pin. Then I added plenty of vodka and ice, and then filled the rest with soda water. The end result: a fruity, tangy cocktail that has a punch.

This blueberry citrus smash uses 60 ml of vodka, or about 1 Eastern European shot. However you can absolutely raise it to 100 since the soda water neutralizes a lot of the vodka kick.

Equipment

  • Rocks Glass

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Blueberries
  • 2 wedges Blood Orange
  • 1/2 small Lime
  • 60 ml Vodka
  • 100 ml Soda Water

Instructions

  • In a rocks glass add the fruit and muddle it with either a proper muddler, or another kitchen tool. I used a French rolling pin and just smashed everything around. You can squeeze the juice from the citrus before muddling it to help release the liquid better.
  • Add ice cubes and vodka and stir. Then add the soda water to the top. Garnish with a lime slice and a blueberry.

Notes

Feel free to increase the amount of vodka. After all, you will anyways.
