"These blueberry martinis are the hit of any party! Easy to make, but the key is the homemade blueberry vodka that requires 2 weeks to properly infuse. After that, it's smooth and fruity sailing with a splash of lime juice!"

blueberries, rinsed and dried
raspberry flavored liqueur
lime zest, garnish
I had a similar cocktail called the "Violet Beauregarde" at an upscale restaurant. This is just as good, and so simple if you can stand the wait. I used frozen blueberries the second time I made this, and not only was it more convenient, but the result was a lovlier shade of violet (hehe) and had a more distinct blueberry flavor. Great recipe.
I thought this tasted like cough syrup. I did not like it at all. If I try it again I will add a lot more lime juice.
After waiting 2 weeks for the blueberries to soak into the vodka, we finally got to taste the martinis tonight. They are excellent and were worth the wait!!!! Now I'm going to make a blueberry pound cake with the left over bluberries!
If you have those little corn cob holders, they are good for making pricks in the berries. I just stab as many as the cob holder will hold while they are in the colander, and slide them off into the bottle-this makes the stabbing process alot quicker.
so good I stayed in bed the next day.
Maybe it's not the fault of the recipe. Perhaps it's just my preference for a good old regular vodka martini with an olive, but I wasn't wild about my blueberry martini. So I'm thinking, "great, now what to do with this bottle of blueberry flavored vodka". I decided to try 2 shots of the vodka with some tonic water over ice and it was a pretty wonderful summer drink!
I was thinking about making blueberry muffins with the blueberries that were soaked with vodka until I bit into one. Yikes! Makes for a nice garnish though in my Blueberry Vodka Tonic drink.
It was torture waiting 2 weeks for this to brew, but WELL worth it. thanks!
Yum! not the most masculine drink, but great for girl's night.
