Blueberry Gin

Makes 1 liter of infused gin


  • 2½ lbs fresh blueberries, divided
  • 1 liter dry gin

Special Equipment

  • container for infusing
  • fine mesh strainer
  • 1 liter-sized glass bottle


  1. Freeze fresh blueberries thoroughly for 2-3 hours
  2. Divide the amount of blueberries in half, placing one part into a container for the infusion, leaving the remaining blueberries in the freezer
  3. Add gin, making sure that the fruit is completely submerged.  Cover and store at room temperature for 3 weeks; there is no need to refrigerate
  4. After 3 weeks, strain through a fine mesh strainer and pour (the partially-infused gin) over the second half of frozen blueberries
  5. Let the mixture sit for about 3 more weeks.  You'll know your infusion is ready when the gin tastes like juicy blueberries. Strain again through a fine mesh strainer and bottle
  6. Store at room temperature and enjoy with Kevin Martin's Blueberry Thrill cocktail!
