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.
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.
