INGREDIENTS

3 cups organic blueberries

One 750 ml bottle Plymouth Gin or other gin

INSTRUCTIONS

Give blueberries a good rinse, then add to a large pot (no need to dry them). Warm blueberries over medium heat, stirring often. Cook blueberries until they release a decent amount of liquid (ideally more liquid than solids). Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Add blueberries with juices to a large, airtight jar. Pour in entire bottle of gin. Seal the lid and store in a cool, dark spot for 5 days. Give the jar a good shake at least once a day.

After 5 days, strain infused gin through a fine mesh basket strainer into a clean bottle or container. The more solid bits you strain out, the longer the gin will last. Store in the refrigerator.
