Blueberry Liqueur

Blueberry Liqueur

3 c. fresh blueberries                  
1 clove
½ c. sugar syrup                       
2 c. vodka
1 lemon wedge, scraped peel

Rinse berries and lightly crush.  Add vodka, lemon peel, and clove.  Pour in dark bottle and store for three to four months.  Strain through dampened cheesecloth squeezing out as much juice as possible.  Add sugar syrup to taste and store another four weeks.  Liqueur will tend to be on the watery side.  Try adding glycerin if a thicker consistency is desired.  Good for baking.  Yield: 3 cups.
