I have to admit, this spritzer been my favorite drink of the summer!! There have been some great ones made (and the best of those have shown up here on the blog), but it has been decided that this one is my absolute favorite.

It’s basically a super jazzed up sparkling water with tons of good flavors PLUS it’s super simple to make. And that color! It’s absolutely stunning — I love the deep purple. It’s the perfect non-alcoholic celebration drink (especially for something like a baby shower or kid’s birthday).

With the blueberries thrown in the glass, a sugar-rimmed glass, some fresh mint and lime, you’ll feel pretty fancy with this beverage. And that’s before even tasting it…then you’ll see exactly what I mean. This is one delicious spritzer.

I know I’ve said it before, but I have been majorly craving good fruity drinks and slushes this pregnancy. It must be the summer heat or something! A requirement is the drink be SUPER cold and simple to make. Both of those apply with this drink.

It all starts with some fresh blueberries made into a simple blueberry syrup. Just water, blueberries, and sugar all mixed into a pot and simmered until nice and syrup-like.  You’ll pour that simple blueberry syrup on top of the ice and next comes the sparkling water. I used the IZZE’s Mandarin-Lime Sparkling Waters for this drink which I am crazy about, but any sparkling water will be great! Lemon-lime or plain lime sparkling water is a great complement to the blueberries.

Once the glass is filled to the top with the sparkling water, give it a good stir, and it’s time for a taste test. Adjust by adding more syrup or more sparkling water, squeeze on some lime, and then ENJOY this amazing spritzer! 🙂

Ingredients

Blueberry "Syrup"

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white sugar

Flavored Water Beverage

  • Lots of crushed ice
  • 4 Izze Mandarine-Lime Sparkling Waters (or similar sparkling waters such as lime or lemon-lime)
  • 3-4 fresh limes
  • Optional: extra blueberries, fresh mint

Instructions

  • Place the fresh blueberries, water, and sugar in a saucepan over medium high heat.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Mash the blueberries and then strain the liquid discarding the solids or using in a smoothie/different recipe. (I blended the remaining blueberries up in a smoothie the next day)
  • If desired, rim the glasses in sugar (I LOVE this simple addition to the flavor of the drink!) Simply press the top of the glass in a bowl of water and then the wetted top of the glass into a small bowl of sugar. Shake off the excess.
  • Fill up 4 glasses to the top with crushed ice - really pack in the ice!
  • Fill up the glass with the blueberry syrup. Allow the syrup to "settle" into the ice and then fill up the glass with Mandarine-Lime Sparkling Water.
  • Stir and add in some freshly squeezed lime.
  • Taste and adjust the drink to personal preference (adding more syrup, more sparkling water or more lime.)
  • If desired garnish the glass with fresh mint and add a handful of fresh blueberries into the glass.

  1. First of all, I totally chill in my yoga pants ALL. DAY. LONG… and then get dressed right before my hubby gets home. And also, it is SO hot here today and these spritzers look absolutely refreshing. I wish I had everything I needed to make these on hand. 🙂 Guess I better make a trip to the store soon!

  2. Can the syrup be made in advance? I’m hoping to do this for my baby shower but am unsure that we would have time to do it the morning of. If it can be made in advance, how would you keep the syrup overnight?

    1. I would just put it in the fridge covered and then whisk it to combine again in the morning 🙂 Should be fine to make in advance!

  3. 5 stars
    Made this spritzer with “key lime” seltzer and left the blueberry chunks in. Delicious! Wouldn’t change a thing 🙂
