Print this Recipe    Blueberry Liqueur


4 cups blueberries, rinsed and drained, fresh or frozen
3 cups 80-proof vodka or 1 1/2 cups pure grain alcohol mixed with 1 1/2
cups water
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 thin strips lemon peel

Place berries in aging container and mash with either the back of
a wooden spoon or a potato masher. Add the vodka or the grain
alcohol-water mixture, stirring to combine. Cover container and
let stand at room temperature or cooler for 2 weeks. Stir every
few days. If the weather is very warm, berry mixture may be put
in the refrigerator.

After initial aging, strain mixture over a large bowl through a
colander or wire mesh strainer. Discard fruit residue and clean
all sediment out of the aging container.

Bring 1 cup water to a boil and pour over sugar and lemon peel.
Stir well to completely dissolve sugar. Let cool to room temperature.
Remove lemon peel and pour cooled sugar-water mixture into aging
container. Add strained blueberry liquid and stir to combine.
Cap and let age 1 1/2 months more.

After second aging, strain mixture again through fine cloth. Re-
strain as needed until clarity is reached. Bottle and cap as
desired. May be used now for cooking but should age at least one
more month for drinking purposes.

Variation: Spiced Blueberry Liqueur is easily made by adding
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves and 1/2 teaspoon whole coriander to the
berries in this recipe.
