The Smurfs are turning 50 this year, and to celebrate, Stirrings — maker of my favorite on-the-go drink mixers — has created a specialty cocktail. While the classic cartoon characters were blue, the drink has a pretty burgundy color.

A combination of orange-flavored vodka and wild blueberry juice, the Smurfette is one potent cocktail. If you loved the Smurfs as a child, you will surely enjoy this cocktail as an adult.

To see how it's made,





  1. 2 oz orange-flavored vodka (recommended: Svedka Clementine)
  2. 3 oz Stirrings Wild Blueberry
  3. sugar mixed with lemon zest, optional for rim


  1. If desired wet the rim of a martini glass with a lemon wedge. Dip into sugared lemon zest, set aside.
  2. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the vodka and blueberry mixer. Shake for 1 minute to combine.
  3. Strain into prepared glass and enjoy!

Serves 1.
