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
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.
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.
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.
