Blueberry Cordials

What’s a fun celebratory 4th of July drink? Blueberry cordials, of course! However, I’m about a month too late in posting this recipe, for you need at least 4 weeks to make it. But if make your cordials now, by August 4th you can relive the July 4th glory! Invite the neighbors over, pour some cordials in tiny glasses, get out the last box of sparklers, and you’ve got yourself a party.


The last post I did about blueberries showed our pathetic crop. Boo. So I had to supplement with local berries instead.

This recipe came from Epicurious.


1 c sugar
2 c vodka
3 c blueberries


Wash the berries. Wash a quart mason jar well. Combine all ingredients in the jar. Make sure the lid is on tight and shake well. (The sugar won’t dissolve right away, which is fine. It takes days to do this.) Store in a cool, dark place for at least a month (or more). Once it’s ready, discard the berries. Pour into small glasses and serve as a desert drink or with tonic as a cocktail. Garnish with a strawberry or a wedge of watermelon. Keep it in the freezer where it will last a long time.
