The one where Bk tries to save summer

Aug 7th, 2023


It’s August, meaning summer is almost over 😞

If you’re in Lagos, you shouldn’t be too worried; the unrelenting heat isn’t going anywhere, unfortunately! 😂

But, even though the end of summer is around the corner, it doesn’t mean we can’t relish in the delights of summer cocktails.
Let’s call this edition “the one where bk tries to save summer.”

In an effort to hold onto one of the best times of the year, we'll share a quick recipe for an exceptional summer cocktail: 'The Vodka Berry Smash.'

Don’t worry, you’ll only need a handful of ingredients:

  • Berries: any type of berries at all; and if you're feeling adventurous, you can combine a variety of berries.
  • Mint or Rose mary leaves
  • Lime wedges
  • Vodka
  • Syrup or honey
  • Crushed ice


All you need to do is muddle your berries, lime, and herbs in a cocktail shaker.

Add as much vodka as you like, the more the better

Add in some syrup or honey 🍯

toss in a few ice cubes  

Shake until cold, then pour everything into a glass.

Serve with crushed ice 🧊

And garnish with a slice of lime

voilà, easy-breezy lemon-squeezy!

Enjoy your cocktail.

Cheers to saving summer! 🥂
