This cocktail by Amy B. from Stonecutter Distillery’s Maple Madness contest combines gin, blueberry juice and Runamok’s Cardamom Infused Maple.  Amy gives a convenient method for extracting the juice below, but we also found that putting some blueberries in a blender and straining makes for a pretty good substitute.

The Sugar House Widow

 

Cut a lemon in half, and use one half to edge a vintage martini glass. Rim the martini glass rim in maple sugar, and set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and fill with gin and blueberry juice, and give a couple shakes to mix it up. Let sit while you squeeze the lemon juice. Add lemon juice and maple syrup to shaker. Shake for about 20-30 seconds so the maple syrup mixes well. Pour into the maple sugar rimmed cocktail glass.

 

Blueberry Juice Concentrate

Reserve the juice left over from thawing frozen blueberries. Strain the juice.
