Step 1: Fill a shaker with ice and add blueberry vodka.
Step 2: Add elderflower liqueur.
Steps 3 and 4: Add fresh lime juice and simple syrup.
Step 5: Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Martinis are best ice cold!
Step 6: Strain contents of shaker into glass and garnish with fresh blueberries.
The answer is simple. Martinis are best ice cold and shaking them not only combines the ingredients, but chills them at the same time.
Absolutely! I love to make a batch of these cocktails ahead of time so happy hour is a snap. I store them in a mason jar and then shake over ice before serving.
The drink can be a different color depending on the brand of elderflower liqueur you use. St. Germain is a darker color than the Drillaud (which is one of our favorites!).
