Do it yourself ~ Blackberry Infused Vodka

Do it yourself ~ Blackberry Infused Vodka

Well you all know by now that I love Vodka…

And who doesn’t like blackberries right?

The other day after Bill and I picked bucket fulls of blackberries, well I picked a bucket full, he only got a 1/2 bucket, apparently I can out pick him…nuff said.

Anyways, I digress…his buddy on Facebook said we should make blackberry infused Vodka, and then use the blackberries that were left over on our toast. Now I don’t know about the getting hammered before work while eating toast thing, I am pretty sure that would be frowned on, but the infused Vodka idea sure works for me.

So I googled.

I found a recipe.

Easy peasy.

Seriously it took me all of about 2 minutes to do, now I have to wait for a week for it to infuse.

Here is what you do…

You will need one mason jar with lid, I used a 1 litre jar.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups or so of fresh cleaned blackberries (I added blueberries to mine, cause I am a rebel, and I have tons of them this year)
  • Enough Vodka to fill the jar to the top (I used about half of a 26’er, maybe a little more)
  • Patience

Take the berries and put them in the bottom of the jar, I squished mine down. At this point you can sprinkle the berries with some sugar if you would like, it speeds up the infusion process and deepens the flavor. I passed on the sugar as I don’t want it to be sweet.

Take your bottle and seal tightly, store either in the refrigerator or at room temperature, keep out of direct sunlight.

Let infuse for at least a week.

Serve over ice or mix with Tonic or Club Soda or even lemonade for a refreshing summer drink!!

And look!!! You did it yourself!!!
