Blueberry Gin Infusion Recipe

BlueberriesSome hot days there's nothing like a gin and tonic to relieve the summer swelter. But what if you did something crazy like infuse it with blueberries? We've never heard of it either, but doesn't that seem like it'd be EVEN MORE refreshing?

Hidden inside a story that could double for propaganda from the Canadian Blueberry Council, we found the following infusion recipe:

Place 1 cup (250 mL) blueberries in a large glass bottle. Add 6 tablespoons (90 mL) sugar and one 750 mL bottle gin. Shake well and set aside for at least two weeks, or up to two months. Shake the bottle from time to time and watch the luxurious blue colour develop. When ready, serve straight in small liqueur glasses. Or place a shot of the blue gin in a blender with 1/2 cup (125 mL) crushed ice. Blend, then pour into tall glasses with a sprig of mint and tonic water to taste.

One day, wanting a gin & tonic, but lacking limes...I decided to throw in a handful of blueberries in with my Citadel gin: delightful! not only did it bring out a new side to the citadel, the blueberries did some amusing somersaults as the bubbles from the tonic collected on the bottom of each berry! :-D I would highly recommend it...
