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!

We're having a garden/birthday party in June and this recipe I came about by chance.OMG, the blueberries have absorbed so much vodka and a friend suggested making them into jelly-shots and adding a blueberry to each. What a great party idea!!-30 Mar 2010

ive made blueberry vodka before but this recipe is excellent, tastes so much better with the addition of the raspberry liqueur it went down so well at my home brew/mixed liqueurs party, hic hic.will be making this again.-26 Oct 2009

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.-01 Feb 2006

Blueberry Martini Recipe

The blueberry martini is made with blueberry vodka, triple sec, simple syrup, and fresh lemon juice.

The blueberry martini was originally inspired by a drink Patty ordered from one of our favorite steakhouses. It basically tasted like a cosmopolitan and antioxidant martini combined. The drink was good, but in my eyes a true blueberry martini shouldn’t have cranberry juice—it takes the drink over and all you can taste is cranberry.

How to make it

Rub a lemon wedge over the rim of a cocktail glass, and dip in raw sugar to create a sugar rim. Add 2 blueberries to the glass and set aside.

Next, in a cocktail shaker muddle 12 fresh blueberries. Add blueberry vodka (although regular vodka WILL work if that's all you have), fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup.

I prefer to make my own simple syrup rather than purchasing it. Simply add equal parts sugar and water to a small saucepan. Heat and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cool before using.

Add ice cubes to the cocktail shaker, cover the lid and shake vigorously. Next, strain it into your prepared cocktail glass.

Expert tip: I recommend straining it through a small fine mesh strainer in addition to the attached strainer in the shaker lid. Otherwise you will get blueberry skins and seeds in your drink.

Blueberry Martini

Happy weekend! Hope it is off to a great start! My kids are at ski school & I am creating cocktail recipes…I know fun right?! I’m beyond obsessed with berries, all berries especially blueberries! Hopefully you can sip these Blueberry Martinis over the weekend, next week for happy hour & be sure to pin & bookmark this recipe for the sizzling summer months.

All you need for this is some fresh blueberries….

Maybe some honey to sweeten it with…some sugar around the rim of the glass works too.

Yesterday I posted these Frozen Raspberry Chambord Milkshakes…you should try them too!

So whether you choose to go with a raspberry or blueberry cocktail this weekend, i’m sure you will be pleased!

Blueberry Lemon Vodka Martini

Today, martinis are much more than your traditional vodka or gin martini, shaken or stirred. My husband laughs because I call this new wave of martinis designer or gourmet martinis. I decided to make a blueberry lemon vodka martini for national martini day, for a couple of reasons. Blueberries are in season now and I love using seasonal ingredients. Plus, blueberry and lemon is a classic flavor combination that is popular.

I had a bottle of Cold Spring lemon vodka which I had not yet opened. I also always have blueberries in my fridge. They are a favorite fruit in my family. If you have read some of my other blog posts you’ll see how much my family loves blueberry pancakes and blueberry pie. So, I thought, why not make a martini. It was a Friday when I whipped these up for my hubby and me. We sat on the porch, listening to the rain, enjoying the end of the work week before making dinner.

The recipe I’ve included here makes one, although you will have enough blueberry reduction for a couple of drinks. The color is so lovely making it perfect for any occasion. You can refrigerate any leftover, or you can make more at one time. So for National Martini Day I present a blueberry lemon vodka martini. Enjoy responsibly!

How to make Fleming’s Blueberry Lemon Drop Cocktail

Before making the cocktail, you will need to have some chilled simple syrup on hand. Simple syrup is easy to make by gently cooking equal parts sugar and water together until the sugar is completely dissolved. It is a very common ingredient in mixed drinks and will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.

The other ingredients needed are fresh ripe blueberries, fresh lemon juice, ice, and your favorite vodka.

Special equipment you will need are a cocktail shaker (with a strainer), muddler, and fine mesh strainer.

Making the cocktail is as easy muddling the blueberries in the shaker, adding the remaining ingredients, then shake, shake, shake. Double-strain the shaken cocktail (through the cocktail strainer and the fine mesh strainer) into your serving glass and enjoy!

Note: I was invited to attend a tasting at the restaurant as a member of the Houston Food Blogger Collective. All food and drink were provided by Fleming’s Steakhouse. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the companies that help make Taming of the Spoon possible.

Blueberry Basil Martini Pops

You might think that after my fiasco with making Raspberry Margarita Pops a couple of weeks ago that I would shy away from boozy popsicles you know, the old ‘fear of failure.’ First of all…if a little failure stopped me I would never bake again since I live at altitude so failure doesn’t hold me hostage only makes me more determined!

The truth is, the end result of that snafu was so delightful that I never felt I had failed, I just felt I had learned something. Sometimes too much of a good thing is simply too much and in that case it was tequila. I knew I was running that risk and so I’m ready to jump back on that horse…with someone else’s recipe!

I won’t deny…when I saw Sylvie at Gourmande in the Kitchen do a post giving away some cocktail books, I was all over it. I commented and tweeted and think I called her and offered my firstborn (she is 32 I guess I should have checked with her first?).

Sadly I did not win any of those books but that frown was soon turned upside down. In a most generous gesture, Sylvia contacted me and asked if I would like to have contact info for the resource that gave her those books. In my most eloquent voice I’m sure I quickly said, ‘Duh, yeah!’

It was painless the synergy was evident and the company was generous so beyond the Blueberry Basil Martini Pop, take a look at these fabulous books they are all great!

Slushed! (F+W Media, April 2012)

It was certainly an Aha! moment when I realized that I tweet with the author of this book, Jessie Cross (@thehungrymouse). Jesse actually suggested the blueberry pops when I mentioned I would love to make a popsicle for this post it was such a great choice.

I can’t begin to explain how fantastic blueberry and basil are together…you MUST try this recipe! This book has sections for ice pops, ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, semifreddo, granita, sorbet, ice cream sandwiches and milkshakes, all with their own tipsy bent.

There are so many fabulous recipes I could easily make one every day of the summer while having an ice cream maker is necessary for some of the desserts, many have been developed needing only the cold of your freezer.

Pops, granitas and sorbets are sometimes the most refreshing treat in the midst of the hottest part of summer and there is a great selection to keep you cooled off all summer long. I can not wait to make my next treat of course I will absolutely be sharing that with you!

Edible Cocktails (F+W Media, April 2012)

Although this book is not about making your own booze, the author, Natalie Bovis encourages readers to plant your own cocktail garden and use those fresh seasonal ingredients to infuse spirits and create homemade syrups and purees.

The book is filled with tips, tricks, and recipes for making extraordinary drinks with fresh ingredients.

Not just a book introducing you to the beauty of herbs, you’ll also learn about some unique infusions that include dairy and meat sounds crazy but with titles like Smoked Bacon Washed Bourbon you’ll lose your skepticism as quickly as I did and get onboard.

There is something for everyone from sweet to savory, from simple to more complicated and a great mix of cocktails using a wide variety of fruits, veggies and herbs.

Never Cook Sober (F+W Media, May 2012)

I know some people might think this book is about me…but really, I put the booze into the foods more than my belly! The authors Stacy Laebs and Sherri Field’s offer us great recipes with a dose of humor. This book is divided into 4 sections dealing with Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Desserts.

I already use alcohol in a lot of my cooking not just wine in stews and sauces but I love bourbon and liqueurs in cakes and other desserts and this book is filled with with some great sweet and savory dishes. All of the recipes include a drink pairing with a toast, some tipsy trivia and a clever quote that often will tickle the funny bone.

All of these books have such great, fun ideas perfect for a summer read!

Blueberry Purple Rain Martini

This Blueberry Purple Rain Martini is such a beautiful shade of purple for a delicious Mardis Gras cocktail! It is the perfect fusion of blueberry vodka, Blue Curacao, and fruit juices with a floating of blueberries (totally healthy boost of antioxidants…yahoo). I seriously couldn’t stop drinking this cocktail yesterday and I have never seen my husband like a martini so much.

Oh purple raaaaainn, purple raaaaainn….I love you purple rain martini! I can bathe in a large glass of you all day. Okay, I am getting slightly nutty this week and this lovely lady got me through some hard times yesterday…LOL! Nothing like celebrating Mardis Gras with a lovely purple martini. If you are gonna go purple this year…go Blueberry Purple Rain and blast some sweet Prince music. This guarantees an evening of greatness.

I am a bit of a lame-0 for sure when it comes to Mardis Gras celebrations. I usually have a few cocktails in the comfort of my own home to avoid the cold and hour long wait for the porta potty. Oh yes…this is how it is done St. Louis style. You go downtown, you drink continuously in hopes of numbing away the bitter cold, and then spend most of your time waiting in line to use top notch facilities. I must say that I have a small tinge of regret for not participating in the festivities this year…the weather was beautiful here today!

I did get a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather by taking my 2 little princesses to the park today…only minor injuries insued. Never a dull moment around here! I will definitely be shaking up another one of these to celebrate on Tuesday. Mardis Gras is the perfect excuse to drink in the middle of the week. While I’m at it…I think these Andes Chocolate Mint Pancakes will make the perfect indulgent breakfast!
