Blueberries are in season here in Florida and we actually just went to a local U Pick farm and got a bunch of these beautiful berries. Of course we will be making lots of blueberries smoothies, my Blueberry Delight Breakfast Casserole, Blueberry BBQ Sauce, Lemon Blueberry Bread and homemade blueberry vinaigrette but I decided a blueberry cocktail was also in order.  I mean, when isn’t a fresh and beautiful cocktail not in order?!

Blueberries are not only beautiful, but considered a super food, so why not add them to a cocktail?! Blueberries are naturally sweet so there is no need for added sweeteners to this Blueberry Lemon Martini.

I used fresh blueberry juice in this martini recipe. That means I actually “made” the juice myself. Which is actually really easy, don’t get nervous. To make fresh blueberry juice you simply “muddle” the berries then pour the mixture over a mesh strainer so that you capture the juice.

What is muddling? Muddle is just a fancy word for smash. I put about a cup of blueberries into a large coffee cup and smashed them. I used my Pestle from my mortar and pestle set (typically used for grinding herbs) and it worked just fine, if you have a cocktail muddler that would work perfectly as well, and honestly I don’t see why any spoon, fork or masher wouldn’t work either.

I used approximately one cup of fresh blueberries to get 2 ounces of fresh blueberry juice for my Lemon Blueberry Vodka Martini.

I also used fresh lemon juice. Look at all the good fruits you are getting in this easy cocktail recipe!

Here are some of the health benefits of blueberries:

  • Blueberries are high in fiber, Vitamin C and Vitamin K.
  • Blueberries are considered the King of Antioxidants.
  • Blueberries may lower blood pressure and prevent heart disease.
  • And personally, I think a health benefit is that blueberries taste amazing.

Now, I am not saying that drinking martinis has health benefits, but I am saying that the blueberries in this martini recipe add a bit of good-for-you-stuff.  And, I will admit that after one of these Blueberry Lemon Drop Martinis I am feeling a bit better. Not sure if that’s the blueberries or the vodka though ๐Ÿ˜‰
