Blueberry liqueur isn’t easy to come by in India though the spirit is used in a variety of cocktails around the world. While blueberries aren’t all that common in local vegetable markets, high-end food sections in malls today do stock this juicy fruit. So why not try making it at home For half a kilo of blueberries, you would require half a litre of vodka. Check the blueberries for any mould and discard them. Place the blueberries in a glass jar and crush them with a wooden spoon. Add vodka and stir well. Store the jar away from sunlight for one month. Stir the blueberries with a metal or wood spoon at least once a week. Boil 2 cups of water in a pan. Add the sugar and stir constantly until all the sugar dissolves completely. Let the simple syrup cool down. Add the simple syrup to the jar of blueberry liqueur and stir. Store the jar back in its place and let it sit for 2 weeks. Stir the liqueur at least once a week. After at least six weeks of aging, strain the liqueur with a fine mesh strainer.
