When I was younger, my “club” drink was a vodka cranberry bar lime.


It’s been awhile since I had any, so I was super excited to experiment with new recipes once I got this beautiful bottle of Belvedere in the mail. The limited edition bottles are a part of the (RED) Campaign, with proceeds going to various charities.


This recipe was inspired by my 20-year-old’s go-to drink. Instead of cranberry & lime, it is blackberry & lemon – a wee bit grown up :) I thought of doing a “fresh” drink because the food we eat during the holidays are so heavy! And it is perfect because blackberries are in season and the colour comes out a beautiful vibrant red!

You will need (serves 4 glasses):

Belvedere vodka
simple syrup (sugar + water mix)
1/2 pint of fresh blackberries
2 large lemons (will make about 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice)


Tip: If you mix the blackberry puree, water & simple syrup it will be easier to serve this in batches. Your guests can just add how much vodka they’d like :)


Ta-da! Perfectly refreshing and in season :)

Disclosure: This bottle of Belvedere was sent to me for review and in to help me put together this holiday drink recipe. That’s it! Recipe and opinion are allll mine, baby.
