Comments on this Recipe

I made this beverage last weekend and it was AWESOME! no one could believe it was from my VegTimes mag! Only small variation I did was add some mint leaves to muddle before the final strain - it gives it a nice extra kick (mojito-ish); also note you will want to drink this right away however it takes a long time to cool! SO make well in advance before thirst! :)

I already do a ginger-lime fizz similar to this...but I add a touch of ST. GERMAIN to give it an added refreshing loveliness!

What solids are there if you're only boiling ginger and sugar? What is meant by blueberry "syrup" in this instance? Why do the items list include 10 oz each of soda and vodka when it says to add it "by the glass" in Tablespoons?? Very confusing instructions....

The instructions are confusing. What is the blueberry syrup? 2Tbs vodka 2Tbs soda. These are martini measurements, not a drink. I'd love to try this so I'll ad-lib

Great drink recipe!!! I brought it to a beach party and everyone loved it! The Kids also loved the "blueberry syrup" over ice. Delicious

I love this drink! I've made it twice now without any blueberries because I didn't have any. They aren't needed -it's delicious without them.
