Blueberry Buck, my favorite cocktail recipe hands down!

Vodka Blueberry Buck Cocktail recipe

So many things in about this cocktail recipe, the blueberry buck that I enjoy! It’s so light and refreshing and has the perfect blend of flavors.

This is one of those recipes with blueberry vodka that isn’t overly fruity or sweet but is balanced with lime and is sweetened to your liking with a basic simple syrup.

I had this version of a blueberry buck at Marlow’s Tavern and enjoyed it so much that I had to figure it out to make so I could share it with friends and family.

What’s the difference between a Moscow Mule and a Buck?

It’s all in the name. A Moscow Mule and a Buck are basically the same, although there are plenty of theories as to the origin, at the end of the day they are both interchangeable.

Cocktail drinks which are made with any spirit, citrus, and ginger beer or ginger ale used to be known as a Buck. Now, this drink is better known as a Moscow Mule.

For this vodka recipe, I recommend Smirnoffs Blueberry Vodka, it’s a lovely smooth vodka and has a gorgeous blueberry flavor and aroma. For the ginger beer, I’ve used Fever Tree’s Ginger Beer, my personal favorite! If you are unable to find these brands, you may need to adjust the amounts given in this recipe, as this recipe is based on using those particular brands.
