Blueberry Martini

While bicycling with a friend who would be coming over for dinner later, he brought up the idea of having mixed drinks that evening. I haven’t had a mixed drink in a while, so I thought the idea sounded fun. Originally thinking something with rum, I decided to go for something that paired better with the Italian inspired dinner Jill was going to cook and that gave a nod to seasonal ingredients — the Blueberry Martini.

I did an internet search for good blueberry martini recipes, but most of them called for infusing vodka with blueberries for two weeks, breaking out a blender, or mixing together and extensive list of liqueurs and other ingredients. So, I decided to create my own recipe.

Vodka, Agave Nectar, Blueberry Juice, Lemon
Blueberry Martini Ingredients

To make my version of the Blueberry Martini, combine in a shaker:

  • 2 oz. Absolut Berry Acai Vodka
  • 1 oz. Agave Nectar
  • 1 oz. Bolthouse Farms Blue Goodness Fruit Smoothie
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
Fill the shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with a lemon wedge and blueberries skewered onto a toothpick.
Prost!
