Homemade Blueberry Liqueur
Have you ever made your own homemade liqueurs? My hubs remembers his mom used to make her own when he was growing up. So a few years back we gave it a try ourselves. It’s a simple process using just berries & vodka & then homemade simple syrup syrup to finish it off. These flavored liqueurs can cost a pretty penny in the store. But the best part about this homemade recipe is that it actually turns out better when you use the least expensive vodka available. Save your top quality vodka for another drink when it really counts. For this I pick up the cheap stuff in the plastic bottle. I use the same stuff I use to make my homemade vanilla extract. It’s a huge bottle & so I can really get a whole lot of recipes out of it- which is great. It’s a fraction of what I would pay for one specialty flavor. All it takes is a little patience. But you’re in luck- it’s only a couple weeks unlike my homemade brandy recipe which takes several months.
It’s as simple as blend, store & shake. Then add your homemade simple syrup & it’s ready to go. I’m telling you- this makes the best gifts. People just can’t believe that you can actually make this yourself & it’s so GOOD! Definitely a special treat & inspires so many creative cocktails.
