HOMEMADE BLUEBERRY LIQUOR RECIPE
This recipe takes 90 days - so you may want to make a double batch...
- SIMPLE SYRUP:
- 1 (12oz) pkg frozen blueberries
- 1/2 lemon, zested
- 3 whole cloves
- 1-1/2 cups Grey Goose vodka
- 3/4 cup simple syrup
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups white sugar
Thaw the blueberries and mash with a fork in a bowl, and then add to a quart canning jar. Add the lemon zest, cloves and vodka. Seal the jar tightly and store in a cool, dry place for 90 days - shaking the jar gently every week or so.
After 3 months, strain the blueberries and filter through a cheesecloth. Pour into a quart jar. Pour in the simple syrup and tightly seal - shake the bottle gently until well combined. Store in a cool, dry place for 30 days more.
When ready to bottle, strain again through a cheesecloth and pour into the decorative bottle. Serve with 7-Up or club soda in a two to one ratio. Enjoy, it's well worth the wait.
Combine in a small sauce and bring to a boil. Simmer until all sugar is dissolved. Cool, and store in a airtight container.
