PEI blueberry-vodka cocktails. Lemon cheesecake (so easy, so tasty).

Cocktail:
2 shots blueberry vodka (Thanks Lori!), top with club soda, spritz of fresh lime, blueberry garnish
* I would use tonic water next time tho - I think it needed the sweetness.
* Keep vodka in freezer.

Cheesecake:
1 1/4 C graham crumbs
1/4 C melted butter

3 250 g packages cream cheese (not "light")
1/4 C sugar
3 eggs
zest and juice of one lemon

Mix crumbs and butter - press into bottom of 9" spring form pan.
Beat cream cheese + sugar till smooth.
Add eggs one at a time and mix till just blended.
Stir in zest and juice, pour into pan.
45 minutes at 350 F, cool completely then refrigerate.
Take out before serving to bring back to room temp (tastes better).

Topping: Fresh blueberries with sugar to taste and squeeze of lemon juice - stir on low heat till syrupy. Cool - bring to room temp before serving.
