Ingredients
  

For the Blueberry-Infused Gin

  • ½ cup blueberries (I recommend using frozen)
  • ½-¾ cup gin of choice

For the Cocktail

  • 2 oz blueberry-infused gin
  • squeeze of lime juice (or lemon, if you prefer)
  • 4-6 oz premium tonic water (like Fever-Tree or Q Mixers)

Instructions
 

For the Blueberry-Infused Gin

  • Add the frozen berries to a mason jar. Pour the gin over the berries.
  • Screw the lid on the mason jar and shake gently. Allow the mixture to infuse for 1 hour, then strain out the blueberries, reserving the gin.
  • Store any leftovers in the closed mason jar, preferably in the refrigerator. Discard if the infusion begins to look or smell off.

For the Cocktail

  • Fill a highball or balloon glass with ice. Pour the blueberry-infused gin over the ice.
  • Squeeze a lime or lemon wedge into the glass and stir to chill.
  • Top with chilled tonic water and stir gently to combine. Garnish with gin-soaked blueberries, if desired.

Notes

Infuse the gin for anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 days, depending on how strong you want the berry flavor to be. If using fresh berries, it will take longer to infuse.
