Lemon thyme blueberry wine spritzer

Seasonal Sunday

We are super excited to share this recipe with you today on account of many reasons…one being we were recently published over at The Sweetest Occasion for it! Yay!! But that just means they knew a good thing when they saw it because man oh man was this drink good! I have successfully managed to keep my Meyer lemon tree alive yet another season and am enjoying the benefits full throttle! I always love anything lemon and then your marry that with wine and you really can’t go wrong- this drink is also equally appealing when it comes to eye candy. We are sharing this recipe with you in perfect timing as you get into Spring hosting mode for Easter or just better hosting whether overall.

Makes 1 pitcher

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 3 Meyer lemons
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 bottle dry white wine
  • 3 cups tonic water
  • 8 – 10 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Ice

Start by zesting your lemons, then squeeze lemons and separate seeds from juice. Next muddle your blueberries. The ingredients above will make a full pitcher, but to chill make in a large cocktail shaker filled with ice. Pour equal parts white wine and tonic water into shaker over ice. Shake. Next pour into pitcher and repeat until all wine and tonic water is mixed and chilled. Add sugar, lemon juice, zest, muddled blueberries and thyme sprigs to pitcher. Keep refrigerated or serve immediately. Alternately, if you’d like to make in advance simply make wine and fruit mixture ahead then add tonic water just before serving.
