Ginger-Lime Fizz with Blueberries

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 1/3 cups lime juice
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 1/4 cups vodka (10 oz.)
  • 1 1/4 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.
