“Found this on a political site, she was going to celebrate the health care vote with it and had to have the recipe! It takes about a week to dissolve the berries but can be used after two or 3 days. Prep time includes this”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Throw the blueberries and gin in a mason jar, and let this sit for about a week (it actually only takes two to three days for the blueberries to dissolve, so it just depends on how blue you want it).
  2. Boil the vanilla bean and sugar in a cup of water for about 1/2 hour or so, and stick in the fridge to cool (or not, it can be hot if it your pouring it on ice).
  3. Squeeze 1/2 a lemon in a glass of ice, pour in vanilla syrup to taste, pour in gin. Shake (I like to shake mine in a martini shaker), garnish with a couple blueberries, and drink!
