THE Wild Maine Blueberry Lemon Drop Martini

Have you tried NECM’s wild Maine blueberries? They are truly nature’s candy. Locally sourced blues are only in season for a short timeframe – if you missed them, not to worry – any fresh blueberry will do, and this homemade martini is not to be missed!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Ice
  • Vodka
  • Cointreau
  • 2-3 Lemons

Wild Maine Blueberry Simple Syrup:

If you haven’t made a simple syrup at home yet, follow these simple instructions –

Mix equal parts blueberries, water, and sugar (about one cup each) together using a whisk in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium and bring water to a gentle boil, stirring often, until mixture is thickened, about 15 minutes. Whisk one teaspoon of lemon juice into syrup. Let cool before using!

Martini Directions:

  1. Fill a shaker with ice 
  2. Pour 4 shots of smooth vodka  
  3. Add 2 shots of cointreau 
  4. 1.5-2 shots of homemade wild Maine blueberry simple syrup
  5. Add juice of 2 lemons  (less juice = less tart)
  6. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds and strain into chilled martini glasses
