Recipe

Ingredients (serves 2):

1/2 ripe lemon
1/4 cup blueberries (about 15 berries, can be fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 ounce Hangar 1 Maine Wild Blueberry vodka
1 1/2 ounce vodka
1 1/2 ounce Cointreau
2 ounces premium lemonade
Ice

Directions:

  • Add the blueberries to the glass side of a Boston-style cocktail shaker, squeeze in the juice of the lemon half, and muddle until berries are well crushed.
  • Fill metal side of shaker with ice and pour in the lemon/blueberry mixture.
  • Add vodka, Cointreau, and lemonade.
  • Join shaker halves and shake briskly for 15-20 seconds.
  • Strain into chilled martini glasses.
  • Garnish with skewered blueberries.

Bartender’s Hint:  If you ever come across Hangar 1’s Maine Wild Blueberry vodka, stock up!  It can be difficult to find.  If it’s not available, adjust the recipe to use 3 ounces “regular” vodka, throw in a few more blueberries, and reduce the lemonade slightly.  If you do find the blueberry vodka, you may be tempted to use a full 3 ounces; for our tastes, using a 50-50 blend with plain unflavored vodka results in a smoother blueberry martini.
