Infused vodkas are not only fun to make but they also save you some dough. Instead of buying huge bottles of all the different flavors you want, buy one big bottle of regular vodka and make smaller infusions. Some of them, like this blackberry infused vodka, only take a few days to infuse. So, when you run out, it’s no problem. You just get another batch going. Easy, peasy.
Blackberry infused vodka is great to make in the summertime when the berries are fresh. There’s nothing like going to the farmer’s market and stocking up on berries and coming home to put them in vodka. I suppose you could also eat the berries, but what fun is that? Or, there’s always the option of making a blackberry mojito or a blackberry ginger daiquiri. Mmmm.
How to make: Blackberry Infused Vodka
- Organic blackberries (the amount you need will depend on how much vodka you want to infuse. If doing a pint size container, use 8 to 10 berries. If doing a whole 750 ml bottle, use 1 cup of blackberries)
- Add the blackberries to a mason jar and gently muddle them.
- Fill jar with vodka, put the cap on it and place it in the fridge. Give the jar a shake once a day. While you’re at it, also try a little sip of the vodka.
- Once the vodka has the blackberry flavor you are looking for, strain the blackberries and put the vodka in a clean mason jar or other glass bottle. Mine took about 3 days to infuse.
- Store your blackberry infused vodka in the fridge, on the counter or wherever else you keep your booze.
- Use as desired in a blackberry pineapple cocktail or whatever other drink strikes your fancy.
