Southern Cocktails - Blueberry Martini

A few months back my mom, knowing how much I love all things party and all things southern, gifted me a copy of Southern Cocktails by Denise Gee. Ladies this is by far the most fun recipe book I have ever received. Page after page the delicious libations just keep on coming! There are also some yummy appetizer recipes thrown in for good measure. Southern Cocktails is the perfect planning resource for happy hour, a girls night, or really any event you want a signature cocktail for.
For all of our Swanky ladies out there we have the delish blueberry martini recipe to share with you!

Handful of fresh, washed blueberries (about 20 small)
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce blue curaçao liqueur
1/3 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, or more to taste
Garnish: Several berries skewered on a cocktail pick
Muddle the blueberries in a cocktail shaker. Add the vodka, curaçao, and lemon juice. Fill the shaker with ice. Shake vigorously to help the blueberries release more color and flavor. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a chilled martini glass. Add the garnish. Yield: 1
