So, yeah, I bought a bunch of vodka, and have set about doing all sorts of things with it! Yesterday, I showed you my soon to be limoncello. Today, it’s blueberry infused vodka. Why? Because Whole Foods had blueberries on sale and I bought 4 containers of them.
I did a whole bunch of Google searching to find a recipe or method that sounded good (and easy) to me. I settled on Blueberry Infused Vodka from Lgndsays.com.
Blueberry Infused Vodka
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 liter vodka
In a medium bowl, mix the blueberries with the sugar and lemon juice. Gently break the skins of the blueberries with the back of a spoon. You don’t want to crush them, just break the skin. Add this mixture to a large clean jar, with a tight fitting lid and add the vodka. Allow to steep for 2 to 4 weeks, shaking the jar daily (or whenever you remember). When it’s done steeping, strain the fruit and store in a cool dark place.
I plan on using this in some of my frozen pops, sorbets, ice tea…all sorts of ideas!
