Fourth of July Very Berry Vodka Lemonade | A Good Hue

For me, Fourth of July is not only a day to celebrate my American pride but to also remember my heritage and the ancestors who have made it possible for me to lead the life I have here in the US. While the majority of my family has been in America for several generations, my grandmother is 100% Swedish. She was born and raised in Sweden and came to America to be with my grandfather whom she had met overseas.

With my Swedish lineage, I tend to gravitate towards and want to support Swedish brands. One of those is my personal favorite vodka brand, SVEDKA. Keep reading to see how I’m incorporating SVEDKA vodka into a yummy Fourth of July Very Berry Vodka Lemonade (recipe included!) >>

SVEDKA vodka is directly imported to the US from Sweden, a country known not only for their meatballs but for perfecting vodka as well. In fact, it’s now the #1 vodka imported into the US (Source: Adams 2015) so you know it’s good!  SVEDKA is actually named as a mash-up of ‘Svenska’ (meaning ‘Swedish’) and ‘vodka’… neat, right?

 

SVEDKA, which is wheat-based and made with spring water, has a subtle and smooth taste and is a good quality value vodka. It mixes well into cocktails and is my vodka go-to.

To celebrate the Fourth of July, SVEDKA has released a fun limited edition Stars & Stripes vodka with red, white and blue party packaging that’s perfect for your Independence Day festivities. When I first brought the bottle home from the store, Steve remarked that it “looks really cool”, which basically means that it gets two thumbs-up from him.

I’m super excited to share this delicious recipe with you– you’ll be (pleasantly) surprised to see how easy it is to make a berry simple syrup. Fourth of July Very Berry Vodka Lemonade | A Good Hue

The delicious tart agave-sweetened four-berry syrup and lemonade blend pairs perfectly with SVEDKA vodka. While the below berry vodka lemonade recipe makes a couple of glasses, you can increase the amounts to make this ahead of time in a pitcher for easy party serving.
