Blueberry Infused Vodka Lemonade

August 3, 2011

Every time my fiancé and I go down to visit his family in NC, his dad ribs me about all the rednecks we come across. Like I’m some fish-out-of-water, ain’t never seen no rednecks before, “city girl.” I always have to remind him that I hail from East Tennessee where the moonshine flows steady and the rednecks are aplenty. Heck, I grew up learning all the versus of Rocky Top (yeah, there’s more than one and a chorus) and, when necessary, I can speak with more twang that Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama. Don’t doubt my hillbilly street cred.

And I can handle a strong mountain drink. I’ve sampled moonshine freshly bought off an unmarked tree stump, deep in the woods. No I didn’t buy it, but I tasted it. And it was crazy strong. And sometimes you can get fruit flavored too. But now I’m all off track. The point is, a stiff drink never hurt anybody and vodka is about as close as you’re gonna get to moonshine in these here parts. So, I give you a blueberry infused vodka lemonade drink that will cool you off and put some hair on your chest. Drink it any way you like, but the preferred method is from a mason jar while sitting in a rocking chair on the front porch and sweating through your blouse. A paper fan is optional, but time is not. You’ll need at least 12 hours for this southern comfort.

Ingredients: (makes 2 drinks)

vodka

1/2 cup fresh blueberries

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1 teaspoon sugar

lemonade

lemon slices for garnish

Directions: Put the fresh blueberries in the bottom of a mason jar.

Get some decent vodka. No Popov. (Sorry, Popov, my college days are long gone but you did serve me well and I’ll never forget you!)

Pour it over the berries, filling the mason jar.

Reminiscent of moonshine, no? No idea what I’m talking about? Course not…

Use a fork to mash up the berries in the bottom. Put on the lid and store in the fridge for at least 12 hours to allow the blueberries to infuse into the vodka.

The vodka will turn cloudy right away, and will become purplish the longer it infuses.

Once the 12 hours (or 24, or 36)  are up, strain the vodka. Save those liquor-soaked berries for garnish! We don’t want perfectly good fruit going to waste.

In a small bowl, thaw out the frozen berries and  mix with sugar. In a fresh mason jar (or serving glass of your choice), pour in the sugared berries (divided between two jars) and add a bunch of ice.

Pour in one part blueberry vodka and two parts lemonade. Give it a good stir. Add a few of the vodka-soaked blueberries and a slice of lemon for garnish.

Ahhh, that’ll do the trick!

So with this on my mind, I was hoping Fallout: New Vegas would
support the community with mods and I found my
answer as I read part 2 of a Fallout: New Vegas
fan interview on the Bethesda website:. And possibly suffering from
the worst case of Low T in the long and storied
history of both simultaneous and sequential hermaphrodites.

This vibrant city also has a booming escort industry that takes pride in fulfilling numerous men’s secret desires and carnal fantasies.

Unless somebody knows what they’re doing, rooting on Android or jail breaking on iOS is a good option to contract a virus or piece of malware on a

Hey there, I think your website might be
having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your
website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of
plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique
content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
