Today is Beach Brella’s founder and owner Shelley Arends’ birthday! Here’s a drink recipe for Spiked Blueberry Soda for the birthday girl from Camper Cocktail Company to celebrate. Blueberries provide us with antioxidants while vodka and St. Germain Elderflower liqueur help us maintain that pleasant birthday buzz. We highly recommend using high quality, organic blueberry preserves for this drink. This is a terrific recipe to keep in your summer mixing repertoire because it’s fruity, floral and easy to drink. Plus, this drink scales easily so you could batch a large pitcher to serve at your next barbecue or summer bash! Cheers.
