- 3 cup fresh blueberries or blackberries
- 1 clove
- 1/2 cup sugar syrup (see recipe) to taste
- 2 cup vodka
- 1 each lemon vedge, scraped peel
Blueberries can be bought in season (May to Sept). Avoid stained baskets and DO NOT rinse until ready to use. If freezing, do so BEFORE rinsing.
Rinse berries with cold water and lightly crush. Add vodka, lemon peel, and clove. Pour in DARK bottle and store for 3-4 months. Strain through dampened cheesecloth squeezing out as much juice as possible.
Add sugar syrup to taste and store another 4 weeks. Liqueur will tend to be on the watery side. Try adding glycerine if a thicker consistency is desired.
Good for baking.
