Pineapple Martini with Blueberry & Rosemary-infused Vodka
(recipe serving size – 1 martini)
For the martini:
3 oz vodka
3 oz pineapple juice
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
1 sprig of rosemary
1 oz fresh lime juice (roughly juice of 1/2 lime)
Place a handful of ice into a shaker. Add the fresh blueberries and the vodka. Muddle for about 30 seconds until the color of the vodka has taken on a purple hue. Add the pineapple juice, lime juice, sprig of rosemary and additional ice. Shake for 10-15 seconds and strain into a chilled martini glass. Add blueberries and/or a sprig of rosemary for garnish. Serve while cold.
- For gin lovers: replace the vodka with gin and follow the same steps.
- For extra rosemary flavor: add the rosemary to the shaker during the muddling process and muddle the herb along with the blueberries and alcohol before adding the pineapple and lime juice.
- To keep your drink cold longer: freeze a few blueberries and add the frozen berries to your cocktail once it has been poured.
