blueberry infused vodka

     It's blueberry season and I'm on a marathon quest to preserve them in a myriad of ways, one of which is a quick infused blueberry vodka. It takes only a few days to marinate in a dark place and the reward is a brilliant blueberry tasting vodka ready to pour over ice or use in a drink.

     Inspired by Susan Elia MacNeal's book, Infused, I have made a u-turn from making all liqueurs with fresh summer fruits to also making infusions. And this summer, more than ever, it seems like a ritual to make summer not go away. A way to preserve summer in a bottle and make it last all year. I have a long shelf in the basement filled with bottles of fresh fruit liqueurs I have been making. Oh, summer, please don't go away!

     All you need are sterilized ball jars. You put the blueberries in a saucepan and cook them over medium heat just until the juices begin to release.

     Then put them in a Ball Jar and top up with vodka. It's that easy. In 4-5 days, after letting them rest in a dark place, you have blueberry infused vodka—a beautiful color and a beautiful drink.

    Reminds me of my favorite fruit! Watch out though as those teeny tiny pieces that you serve yourself end up to be the whole cake!
