There are many blueberry martini recipes available, but you may find this one just a little more interesting than most. It is a fun drink and mixes up quickly so you can enjoy it anytime.
This Blueberry Martini features the very smooth Ultimat Vodka, one of the great, lesser-known premium vodkas on the market. To this, Patron Citronge is added as the orange liqueur of choice here (though another can be substituted) and fresh blueberry and mango juices are used to finish it off.
The blueberry juice is very easy to obtain without a juicer. Simply muddle a handful of fresh berries until you get the amount of juice needed. Mango is a different story and you will either need a good juicer or find it in the store.
The surprising aspect of this Blueberry Martini is the mango and it is the element that I love most about this variation. Other blueberry martinis are very one-sided, relying completely on the berry juice (or a blueberry vodka), and the mango here adds a nice second dimension, giving the drink a more interesting flavor.
The Ultimat Blueberry Martini, along with The Patron Gold Cosmopolitan, were featured cocktails at the pre-show party and at the Governors Ball during the 81st Academy Awards in 2009.
