Here at the Institute for Vodka Research we take our work seriously for many reasons. Our research indicates that vodka increases your ability to dance and sing loudly by yourself to songs you don’t even like by over 29%. It also increases the aesthetics of almost everyone you meet by more than 32%.
If you missed the bit about how to make your own Blueberry Vodka, refer back to the Infusions post. Personally I don’t like off-the-rack flavoured vodkas, they taste chemical to me. Tastes vary.
To make a Basil Simple Syrup bring 1 1/2 C Sugar, 1C Water to a boil, remove from heat, throw in 4 sprigs of basil and let cool. Strain off the basil. This will make loads but you can freeze it ice cube trays then pop it into Ziplocs for later research. Probably best to label the Ziploc before the research.
- 2 oz Blueberry Vodka
- 1 1/2 t Basil Simple Syrup
Shake over ice then strain into a martini glass.
The blueberry gives the mix a tangy quality that hits mid palate. The basil syrup gives a little citrus quality and sweetness to round out the flavors. The pairing is surprisingly good.
Your horrible bitch-boss is a fading memory. You can dance. Everyone loves you.
