Deep Purple Berry Infused Vodka Lemonade

I love serving this drink on hot summer days. These fruity concoctions are perfect for novice drinkers as the lemonade makes the vodka almost impossible to taste. With that said, although I recommend using a higher quality vodka, if it is not in your budget this is one of those drinks that can tolerate a lower quality liquor... Enjoy!

1 cup Berry ( I like to use a mix of blackberries and blueberries )
1 cup Vodka
1 cup Simple Syrup ( 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, heated until dissolved and allowed to chill )
1 cup lemon juice
2 quarts water

In a small bowl add vodka and berries. Allow to sit for at least a few hours ( I like to soak mine overnight ).

Once vodka has been infused, pour mixture into a large pitcher. Add lemon juice and water and stir.

Pour half of the simple syrup mixture in. Stir and taste. If it is sweet enough for your taste, discard remaining syrup. If not, add remaining syrup in small batches tasting frequently as to not over sweeten.

Best served over ice with some coconut cake and your best gal pals!
