3 cups organic blueberries
One 750 ml bottle Plymouth Gin or other gin
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.

Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
