Since I was in Savannah last week, my mom decided to play photographer, I attempted to be a modeler, and it all took place in a real-life backyard instead of my apartment living room. So yay for a summer frocktail! I'm pretty smitten with Anthropologie's emerald ripple dress. The colors, the stripes, the full skirt, it has Saturday night summer uniform written all over it.
For the cocktail, this blueberry-infused vodka lemonade recipe served as my inspiration, but I've always fancied myself a limeade sort of gal. You can just add the alcohol-soaked fruit to your limeade or go full throttle and mix in the blueberry-infused vodka for a tasty, gorgeous pink drink. I'd recommend the latter ... even if it doesn't match your dress.

2 cups vodka
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
3/4 cup lime juice
3/4 cup sugar
3 cups water
mint for for garnish
To make limeade, combine one cup of water and 3/4 cup of sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and make sure sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Combine with 3/4 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice and 2 cups of water. Chill in refrigerator. Makes about one quart.
Fill glass with ice, several of the vodka-infused blueberries and two parts limeade to one part blueberry vodka. Garnish with mint.
