Make your own deliciously infused vodka with this Blueberry Infused Vodka recipe.
500g blueberries (frozen or fresh)
2 Pieces of Lemon Peel (peel the lemon with peeler so there is no pith attached – that’s the white stuff)
4 Stems of Fresh Thyme (optional)
1 Liter Plain Vodka
In a clean, air tight jar, smash the blueberries. (You need to smash them so that the vodka can penetrate the skins and get all the flavor out.)
Add the lemon peel and thyme.
Pour the vodka over the top of the ingredients.
Seal the jar and shake it up to distribute the lemon peel and the thyme.
Set the jar in a cool place.
Gently turn the jar end over end and side to side once a day for 3 days.
On the third day it’s time to strain and bottle your blueberry vodka.
Pour the contents of the jar into a large strainer that has been placed over a bowl or pitcher.
Gently push on the solids to get most of the liquid out.
Throw away the solids.
Line a funnel with a double layer of cheesecloth.
Pour the blueberry vodka slowly through the cheesecloth into the bottle (you can use the original vodka bottle for this).
Cap up the bottle and let it sit overnight.
