🫐 Blueberry And Peach Vodka Spritzer Is The Drink For Spring
Easter is fast approaching and no matter how you are celebrating this year, you are going to need a summery and vibrant cocktail in your hand.
This drink is bright and refreshing and the basil, blueberry, and peach is the perfect combination for all of the fun upcoming spring and summer events! Basil gives this cocktail some zest, blueberries are always a good idea during summer, and peach makes everything better.

Sparkling water gives this cocktail some bubbles and happy faces all around! I love a good vodka spritzer and I'm sure you do too!
I’m not a huge drinker, but I do like to enjoy a boozy drink of choice from time to time. This fruity cocktail fits the bill because it’s not too sweet and it’s loaded with fresh fruit juice. Adding a splash of lime really zests this cocktail up too!

Basil Peach Blueberry Vodka Spritzer is super to easy to make!
If I’m going to indulge in a cocktail, I want fresh fruit juice to be the base of my drink. I steer clear of soda as much as possible, so fresh fruit is always the easy choice.
What I've done with these cocktails is I've taken two summery fruits and combined them into one delicious, crisp, cocktail. This cocktail is super easy to make. All you'll need are fresh peaches, wild blueberries, fresh lime, fresh basil, fresh ginger, vodka, some sparkling water, and ice. That's it!
Ingredients For The Easiest Cocktail:
- 1-cup sliced peaches
- 1-cup wild blueberries
- ½-tablespoon fresh, chopped ginger
- 1-lime, sliced
- 1-bunch of fresh basil
- 2-shots High-Quality Vodka like Belvedere or Organic Cucumber Vodka
- 1-liter of sparkling water (Use plain sparkling water if making a Mocktail version)
I know some cocktails can get really fancy, but I prefer ones that are simple and use minimal ingredients. I also love ones that involve real fruit because any cocktail that involves getting a fruit serving is a win-win in my book.
Now, you guys know I don't usually drink, but every now and again I love a good spritzer, especially in the hot summer months and this one fits the bill.
If you have a good blender, you could blend up the peaches and blueberries first before mixing them with the vodka but that first step is completely optional.
If you don't want to whip out your blender for this, no problem! Just take a muddler and muddle the fruit together first. I took a muddler and muddled the fresh peach slices, blueberries, chopped ginger, and basil in a glass.
I used one shot per drink for this recipe. You could add more shots if you want, but one shot is a good balance and will keep the alcohol from overpowering your drink.
The fresh juice in this recipe really takes this blueberry peach vodka spritzer up a notch.
A note about the alcohol: Make sure you have good vodka around for this recipe. No cheap vodka! All it does is ruin the drink and if you drink too many (which I don't suggest you do) you won't feel very good tomorrow. Always hydrate with water when consuming alcohol, dehydration is no fun.
I suggest using Belvedere Vodka or Grey Goose; both are top-quality vodkas with a smooth, light taste. Here is another good Vodka option.
You want to make sure you use high-quality alcohol for this blueberry peach vodka spritzer recipe to ensure it doesn't taste too bitter.
The other great thing about this cocktail recipe is that you can use frozen fruit too! If you don't have fresh peaches or blueberries you can use frozen fruit, just make sure to thaw it out first so that you can muddle the fruit together more easily.
The blueberries in this recipe are what make the color so purple! The fruit colors the drink naturally as you can see in the photos.
If you want to leave the blueberries out you can simply use double the peaches and you will get a gorgeous, vibrant peach color too! This recipe can be made both ways, it's such a flexible cocktail.
I love fresh fruit in a good vodka spritzer recipe, it's truly the only way to go!
