A Blast From the Past: Creamy Blueberry Lemonade Martini

I made blueberry infused vodka last year and posted the recipe for this creamy blueberry lemonade martini. It’s been a summertime favorite around our house ever since. I thought that I would re-post the recipe, since it’s blueberry season and all, and you could make up a big batch of your own blueberry vodka and shake up 1 or 2 or 10 of these blueberry lemonade martini’s for yourself.

I started with my blueberry infused vodka recipe that I made last year.  Since it’s blueberry season, you can make this incredible tasting vodka yourself – it’s really easy and tastes so much better than those bottled blueberry vodkas that are out there.  The next addition was lemon infused vodka (truth be told…it’s the first half of my limoncello that I still haven’t gotten around to finishing – so as of now, it’s lemon infused vodka).  That being said, you could make this martini with limoncello in place of the lemon vodka, if you like. But I was still looking for something else and decided that a creamy element would make this vodka martini recipe a little richer and a bit more elegant.

Even though there is a creamy element to this cocktail, it’s not heavy.  The blueberry and lemon flavors keep this light and fresh tasting.  But the creamy element will keep you from guzzling this.  Which is also a good thing because this, like most vodka martini recipes, is pretty much all alcohol – so it packs a bit of a punch. Okay, it packs more than a bit of a punch (Especially since I used my lemon infused vodka that was made with 100 proof vodka. Don’t judge. That’s how you make the first half of the limoncello recipe. Mine just never quite got diluted down with the simple syrup part.) Whatever.

Never really played with Thyme in drinks, going to have to give this one a try. Cheers

The thyme in this blueberry vodka is really quite subtle, and most wouldn’t taste it. But I’ve made it without and it does taste different. I’m a bit of a sucker for thyme in lots of things. Try a sprig of it in a gin cocktail. It plays really nicely.
