1. Prepare your glass 

Take a sturdy glass, like a rocks glass or a highball glass, and fill it with ice cubes. This will keep your drink chilled.

2. Muddle the berries and lemon 

In a cocktail shaker or directly in the glass, muddle the fresh berries and lemon wedges. Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to gently crush the berries and release their juices. This step will infuse the drink with fruity flavor.

3. Add vodka and simple syrup 

Pour 2 oz of vodka and 1/2 oz of simple syrup into the glass with the muddled berries and lemon. Adjust the amount of simple syrup to your taste preference; you can add more if you prefer a sweeter drink.

4. Shake or stir 

If you're using a cocktail shaker, cover it and shake the mixture vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. If you're mixing directly in the glass, use a spoon to stir the ingredients together until well combined.

5. Strain  

If you prefer your drink without pulp or seeds, you can strain the mixture into another glass using a fine mesh strainer. This step is optional, depending on your preference.

6. Top with soda water 

Once your vodka, berries, and lemon are mixed, top the glass with soda water. This adds a refreshing fizz to the drink and helps balance the flavors.
