Ginger-Lime Fizz with Blueberries

Ginger-Lime Fizz with Blueberries

Serves 10 (Makes 2 1/2 cups syrup)

This grown-up ginger ale gets its spicy kick from sliced fresh ginger. The syrup will keep in the fridge up to a week. 
  • 1 cup thinly sliced fresh ginger
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 ⅓ cups lime juice
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 ¼ cups vodka (10 oz.)
  • 1 ¼ cups club soda (10 oz.)

1. Bring ginger, sugar, and 11/2 cups water to a boil in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool. Pour mixture through fine strainer, pushing down on solids to extract all syrup. Stir in lime juice and blueberries.

2. To serve: Pour 1/4 cup blueberry syrup into tall, ice-filled glass, and add 2 Tbs. vodka. Top with 2 Tbs. club soda.

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.

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

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

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....

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!

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! :)
