What’s better on a warm summer evening than a slight breeze, and a cold drink. What if that cold drink was a Honeysuckle Berry Vodka Spritzer? Would that make you smile? It made us smile when we whipped a batch to enter into the #BerryDelish cocktail/mocktail contest sponsored by Wish Farms in conjunction with the Food Wine Conference. Are you going to the conference? You should be, and you can be if you make up your own cocktail/mocktail and enter the Wish Farms #BerryDelish contest here. It’s running until May 12, so there’s still time but enter quick! The prizes include a ticket to the Food Wine Conference in sunny Orlando Florida.It’s hard to believe that one week from today I will be landing in Orlando a few days ahead of the conference to enjoy a little vacation time with Doug before my busy weekend gets started. My daughter, son-in-law and grandson will be joining us in Orlando too, which will be fun!
This is the 5th anniversary of the Food Wine Conference started by my friend Isabel Laessig.
There’s still time to attend this year’s conference and learn, network, play and have fun. It’s held in Orlando, Florida May 19-21 at Rosen Shingle Creek. I am so excited to see all my friends and I am really looking forward to our amazing Saturday night Sunday Supper dinner sponsored by Certified Angus Beef and the Strawberry Jam Sock Hop sponsored by Florida Strawberries.
I hope you’re going too, but if you’re not – enjoy this delicious cocktail and follow along with all of us across social media following #FWCon!
Here’s How to Make this Honeysuckle Berry Vodka Spritzer
You will need the Honeysuckle Simple Syrup Recipe for this Cocktail. But if you just want to use a classic simple syrup, that will taste just as delicious with all those berries!
- 1/4 cup of vodka, chilled
- 1 Tablespoon Honeysuckle Simple Syrup
- Club soda, chilled
- Raspberries, Blueberries, Strawberries
- Raspberries, Blueberries and Strawberries, for garnish.
In the bottom of two glasses, place three blueberries, one strawberry and two raspberries per glass.
Mix together the Honeysuckle Simple Syrup and Vodka and pour evenly into each glass. Gently muddle the fruit at the bottom.
Top each glass with club soda, add ice if desired and enjoy!
Garnish with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
