Black and Blue Vodka Cocktail

As prepared by Jackie Fo,

Infused vodka? Blackberry-infused vodka? You’d better believe it!


I think the blackberry is an undervalued fruit. It doesn’t really get that much attention. I’m here to change that-- by adding vodka ... and what the blackberry does to vodka is unmistakably great.

When I saw this adorable Mason-Jar Blueberry Infused Cocktail, I knew I needed to add my secret weapon – the blackberry. I add it to blueberries to make this drink "black and blue." So clever!

Here’s how you make this Black and Blue Infused-Vodka Cocktail:

Put some fresh blueberries and blackberries in the bottom of a canning jar and add vodka.

Then comes the fun part; smash the fruit with a long wooden spoon and watch the water turn purple! Let the fruit infuse overnight if possible for a deep purple color.

When the vodka is purple enough, it’s ready! Take some frozen berries and sprinkle them with sugar.

Then place the frozen berries in cocktail glasses and let them thaw.

Strain the vodka to remove the berry particles (saving the liquored-up fruit for garnish, if you want) and pour the strained vodka over the thawed-sugared berries. Add a lemon slice and the reserved crushed berries as a garnish, and voila! You have a beautiful cocktail!

Add a top with a fun straw or ribbon around the edge of the jar -- fabulous hostess or housewarming gift!.
