Blueberry Bliss!!! An amazing martini!


As summer approaches, sometimes there is room for a beverage that isn't wine. Like a frosty beer or a chilled drink.

My wife and I have been working on this one the past few summers and I think we have it down now.

This is a martini drink so dust off those martini glasses, grab your shaker, and prepare this wonderful drink.

In a shaker combine:
- half a shaker of ice
- 3 ounces of blueberry vodka - we use Stolichnaya
- 1 ounce of Triple Sec - the one in the rectangular bottle is preferred
- top up with Blueberry Pomegranate juice (the Pom stuff is all we drink)

Shake it for a while - try to make it to a minute (anticipation makes this length of time difficult).

Pour shaken drink into 2 martini glasses and enjoy.

This also can make a nice cocktail drink by adding this to an old fashioned glass or a tall glass and adding ice. It lasts longer, isn't quite as strong, but is a bit less - impressive!

Now, where did my shaker go?

Yes, that's my authentic Starfleet Academy shaker...
