I am really into infusing my own liquors right now.
It is so neat to pour liquor into a jar,
add fruit or herbs,
wait a little bit and you've got a mighty tasty cocktail liquor.
I made this blueberry infused vodka a few weeks back and I'm loving it.
The fresh blueberries add a sweetness to the vodka.
(You could even drink it by itself if that's your thing--
no judgement here!!)
Combine 1 cup blueberries and 2 cups vodka-
and you've got infused vodka.
Easy as pie.
I'm sure there are harder, more complex recipes,
but I'm all about simple.
I decided that this sweet blueberry vodka would go perfectly in a lemon based martini.
Sweet + tart = perfect
(I absolutely love blueberry and lemon together).
Blueberry Lemon Martini
3 ounces blueberry vodka
3 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
lemon wedge for garnish
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake until well combined and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
