The Sonic Bitch Slap

If you’ll recall, I visited a rural Missouri blueberry farm this summer, picking approximately three pounds of blueberries. Once I got the blueberries home, I realize that three pounds was far more than I could eat in the few days of shelf life the berries would manage. I baked muffins and cupcakes, I ate raw blueberries, and I made blueberry-infused vodka.

The blueberry vodka needed to sit for roughly two weeks in my fridge before it would be drinkable. Now that it’s had proper infusion time, a friend and I decided it was time to experiment. The first drink on our menu? The “Sonic Bitch Slap”.

Technically designed as a shot, the Sonic Bitch Slap involves blueberry vodka (of course), pineapple juice, Peach Schnapps and cranberry juice. My friend, realizing that she was drinking with a complete lightweight, opted to make Sonic Bitch Slap martinis instead, upping the proportions of juice to alcohol.

Ingredients:

1 oz Peach Schnapps

1 oz blueberry vodka

1 splash cranberry juice

1 splash pineapple juice

Add the ingredients to a shaker with some ice, shake it, and serve it in shot or martini glasses.

The vodka turned out very smooth, so the martinis went down easily. The blueberries that had been infusing the vodka, however, were another matter entirely. I avoided the berries, but my friend did not. Before the night was over, she was three blueberries to the wind, and I was contented with the discovery of the Sonic Bitch Slap Martini.

  1. I have a friend in Missouri who tells me about her trips to pick blueberries. It’s something I look forward to one day when I move there.

  2. My wife Kathy loves infused vodkas. She got a kick out of your blog. Note to my wife…NO we will not be adding blueberries to the herb garden next year.
    I will not believe for a second that is really the name of y’allz drink. Personally I just think the “Funk” was dead set on working the words “Bitch Slap” into a blog… Cheers!

  3. Ha! Doug, it’s true, the drink is called the “sonic bitch slap”, but you’re right, working “bitch slap” into a post was fun. 😉
