Need an easy way to use up a few to many blues? Look no further than this sweet, adult treat – blueberry cordial! This infused liqueur is easy to make at home; it’s perfect as a one-of-a-kind gift, or enjoy it on your own as a refreshing summer spritzer.
- Serves: 2.5-3 cups
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- 2 c. Brandy
- 1 strip Lemon Zest
- 2 c. Fresh Blueberries
- Simple Syrup, to taste
- Sparkling Wine or Seltzer (for serving)
Combine brandy, lemon zest, and blueberries in a resealable jar; close tightly and allow to sit until deep purple in color (about one month), shaking jar daily. To finish, strain through cheesecloth without pressing on solids.
Mix with simple syrup to taste, then transfer to a resealable bottle or jar. Keep refrigerated and serve cold.
For an easy cocktail, pour 1 ounce of cordial into a glass and top with either sparkling wine or seltzer.
