Huckleberry Cooler

Huckleberry Cooler

While we were in Idaho, my husband celebrated his 30th high school reunion with his old classmates. On our last evening together, we all gathered aboard a party boat for appetizers, cocktails, and a cruise around the lake. The boat’s bar had a special Huckleberry vodka cocktail that was refreshing, pretty, and so delicious. After getting home from a long road trip, unpacking & cleaning the motor home, doing loads of laundry, and picking up groceries in 95+ degree temperatures, I felt we deserved a treat so I made some huckleberry coolers. This delicious (and low guilt) cocktail is super easy to make, tastes wonderful, and is so refreshing on a hot day – cheers!

  1. The drink looks refreshing and perfect for the weather you’ve been having. I’ve never drank huckleberries but we sure enjoyed them in milkshakes and pancakes a few years ago in Montana.

  2. That is a very refreshing drink. Never heard of huckleberry vodka, so I will have to look for it. Sounds good/

  3. I’m so glad you had a wonderful vacation! Your drink is very pretty, and I’m sure it’s just what you need during these hot summer days.

  4. Never heard of Huckleberry vodka but I guess any Vodka will do. It sounds yummy. Cheers Diane

  5. Love how pretty in pink this is! It took me so long to realize that huckleberries and blackberries are one and the same lol.

    1. Huckleberries are very different from blackberries. Huckleberries grow in higher altitudes up in the mountains. I grew up picking them every summer in northern Idaho. They look like small blueberries πŸ™‚

  6. 5 stars
    Thank you, Pam, for this refreshing drink. I am looking forward to giving a try to the Huckleberry Vodka this summer.

  7. that color simply could not be prettier! i didn’t know huckleberry vodka existed. interestingly, my brother was just in montana and he picked a small basket full of huckleberries and was told it would go for $60 at a farmer’s market! didn’t know they were so pricey!!
