Thirsty Thursday--Blueberry Lemon Martini & Blueberry Infused Vodka

I am really into infusing my own liquors right now.
It is so neat to pour liquor into a jar, 
add fruit or herbs,
wait a little bit and you've got a mighty tasty cocktail liquor.

I made this blueberry infused vodka a few weeks back and I'm loving it.
The fresh blueberries add a sweetness to the vodka.
(You could even drink it by itself if that's your thing--
no judgement here!!)

Combine 1 cup blueberries and 2 cups vodka-
and you've got infused vodka.
Easy as pie.
I'm sure there are harder, more complex recipes,
but I'm all about simple.

I decided that this sweet blueberry vodka would go perfectly in a lemon based martini.
Sweet + tart = perfect
(I absolutely love blueberry and lemon together).
