Blueberry Lavender Fizz

After almost 2 weeks of traveling by myself with 2 kids I am finally back home and ready to kick back, relax, and sip on something super special, like these Blueberry Lavender Fizz  mocktails! 

2 tall glasses sitting on a wooden shelf. They are filled with ice and a drink that has a purple ombre effect. There are lime wheels in both drinks and one of them has a cocktail pick with blueberries threaded onto it laying across teh top. There is a wall in the background made of dark brown wood slats.

Seriously, 10 days, alone, with 2 kids is a long time! I am pretty sure by day 4 they had both caught on to the fact that I was in over my head and took full advantage of the situation. Couple this with the sweltering heat and humidity of the south and you’ll start to understand why I was craving an ice cold, fizzy, drink.

I have been obsessed this summer with making homemade sodas for myself and the kids. They love them more than any sugar loaded store bought soda and I like them because I have the option to turn my mocktail into a cocktail anytime I want. The blueberry lavender syrup for this drink is super easy to make and can be used for topping ice cream and is also delicious drizzled over pancakes too. It’s a multi-tasking syrup, you gotta love that!

      Me too Angela!!! I love that I can make them without having to use one of those soda stream machines too. Just a little syrup, some club soda,and ice. It doesn’t get much better than that!
