thirsty thursday: my new years cocktail

Happy new year everyone! I hope you all celebrated the new years with the wonderful people in your life. This year, my friends and I opted for dinner out then going back to a friend's place for some drinks and the countdown, and I have to say, it was perfect. Just the way I want to ring in the new year.

So, I thought I would share with you my favourite drink I used to ring in the new year. It was pretty simple too. Unfortunately, the picture doesn't look super appetizing but I promise it was delicious. It also doesn't really have a name, so I think I'll call it the 2014. 

The 2014:
1 oz Smirnoff Blueberry Vodka
5 oz Soda
Frozen Blueberries (we put a few too many in, but whatever floats your boat)

smirnoff blueberry vodka and soda
The 2014
I love blueberry vodka and I would normally prefer my vodka with 7Up but this is a little lighter on the calories. The flavoured vodka and the fruit add just enough sweetness. So, if you're looking for a lighter option (to maybe help with your resolution), this drink without the blueberries is about 70 calories, the rest depend on the amount of blueberries you put in. 
I hope 2014 is getting off to a great start for you! Cheers.
