Blueberry Infused Vodka

Blueberry Infused Vodka

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!

This sounds so good! I'm thinking some blueberry mojitos would really hit the spot.

This sounds interesting, I've never heard of doing such a thing and now that I quit drinking I think that I'll just wait for you to let me know how it turns out! lol
