Yum Alert: Blueberry Vanilla Vodka

Written by Ashley

Freshen up your summer cocktail with homemade blueberry infused vodka!

Days like these are perfect for drinking your face off in a sophisticated, refreshingly classy, homemade  way. It’s not about being drunk, it’s about the journey you take to get drunk, as far as I’m concerned, anyway. On the rocks.

Blueberry Vanilla Infused Vodka

Recipe from Build/Make/Craft/Bake


  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 pint vodka

Cut the vanilla bean in half the long way to expose the flavorful seedy part. Wash and drain the blueberries. Combine with the vodka in an airtight container. Taste frequently until vanilla flavor reaches the desired level (approximately 2 days). Discard the vanilla bean and leave the berries to infuse for an additional 2 weeks. Strain through a coffee filter or cheesecloth.
