LSU Spiked Blueberry Lemonade

Whether they’re geaux-ing for the Tigers or not, all your College Football Playoff guests will be a fan of this easy purple and gold-inspired party cocktail made with fresh lemon juice, blueberries, and vodka.

Want to make it family-friendly? Skip the vodka and let everyone enjoy this festive purple lemonade

To get this bright purple color, I used a dash of violet gel food coloring, but feel free to skip it if you'd prefer. The blueberries still impart a gorgeous purple shade to this refreshing grown-up lemonade.

LSU Spiked Blueberry Lemonade
Serves 8

1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup granulated sugar
6 cups water
1 1/2 cups vodka
1/4 teaspoon violet gel food coloring (optional, but enhances the purple shade of the drink!)
Garnish: fresh blueberries, lemon slices, lemon rind twists

Combine lemon juice, blueberries, sugar, and 1 cup water in a blender and puree until smooth and sugar is dissolved—about 2 minutes. Use a mesh sieve to strain into a large pitcher or punch bowl. Discard any seeds and solids caught in the pitcher. Stir in the remaining 5 cups water, vodka, and food coloring (if using). Chill until serving time.
