Blueberry-infused vodka is very simple to make, and it can be used in a variety of cocktails. When mixed into a vodka martini or screwdriver, blueberry-infused vodka adds a gentle, delicate flavor to an old standard. Blueberry-infused vodka can also be used to create your own unique drinks and used in marinades for red meat.
Things You'll Need
- 3 cups blueberries, washed and halved
- Large pitcher with top
- 750 mL vodka
- Reusable coffee filter
- Clean 750 mL bottle
- Paper or plastic label
- Waterproof marker
Put the washed and halved blueberries in a large pitcher and cover them with 750 mL vodka. This recipe makes 750 mL of blueberry-infused vodka.
Cover the pitcher and store the infusing vodka in a cool, dark place for three weeks. Shake the pitcher three to four times per week to recombine the blueberries and vodka.
Strain the infused vodka through a reusable coffee filter, catching the vodka in a clean 750 mL bottle. Discard the blueberries skins.
Place a paper or plastic label on the bottle. Date the bottle and identify it as blueberry-infused vodka with a waterproof marker.
Tips & Warnings
- If you want a more intense blueberry flavor and color, let the vodka infuse for 45 days before straining.
- Discard the infused vodka after one year, as it has lost most of its flavor by then anyway.
