Spring has sprung!
  The warmer days are getting me in the mood for one of my favorite cocktails, we call it "Liquid Trouble"...but it's basically an Arnold Palmer with sweet tea infused vodka.  Simple and simply delicious.  But I always like to mix things up a bit and I recently saw a pretty picture of a blueberry iced tea...and it made me want to experiment.  It took a few tries to get the berry flavor to come through and I'm pretty happy with the results.  My only complaint was how warm and sunny it was outside today...it made it impossible for me to snap a picture before the glass fogged up with condensation!
Cheers!  XO  Martha

Blueberry Sweet Tea
3.5 parts lemonade
3.5 parts iced tea
2 parts Firefly or another Sweet Tea Vodka
1 part Creme de Cassis (a blackcurrant liqueur)

Muddle half the blueberries in the bottom of a shaker.  Fill with ice and add all the liquids.  Shake vigorously and strain into a glass filled with ice and the remaining blueberries.  Garnish with a sprig of mint.
