Sleeping Beauty {a huckleberry vodka cocktail}

I’ve made a deal with my mom. She comes to visit and helps with the kids, I make her cocktails. On her latest visit, we did the usual arrangement. She kid-sat. I created this huckleberry vodka cocktail. Win-win.

Sleeping Beauty - a huckleberry vodka cocktail

Admittedly, I’ve had this bottle of huckleberry vodka in the cabinet for a few months. I kept meaning to do something with it, but then the holidays came and I forgot. Luckily, my mom came up shortly after the season of craziness and I remembered the bottle and had an idea for it.

As usual, after sipping down this huckleberry vodka cocktail, my mom proceeded to take a nap. Hence the name, Sleeping Beauty. Anyway, I hope you vodka/bubbly fans enjoy it as much as my mom did. And if you take a nap after consuming, I won’t blame you. I’d do the same thing if I had time to nap.
