Blueberry Green Tea Martini

Blueberry Green Tea Martini Recipe


  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries (plus extra for garnish)
  • 2 teaspoons green tea leaves or 1 green tea bag
  • 1 cup hot, not boiling, water (approximately 175 degrees)
  • 2 ounces blueberry vodka
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • Ice cubes
  • Fresh lemon twist or mint leaves for garnish (optional)


Steep the Green Tea:

  • Place the green tea leaves in a heatproof container. Pour hot water over the tea. Allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes, then remove the tea leaves or bags. Let the tea cool to room temperature, or place it in the refrigerator to chill more quickly.

Muddle the Blueberries:

  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle fresh blueberries until to release their juices and color.

Combine the Ingredients:

  • Add the cooled green tea, blueberry vodka, and simple syrup to the blueberries. Fill the shaker with ice cubes.

Shake the Martini:

  • Secure the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds, or until well chilled.

Prepare the Glass:

  • If desired, chill a martini glass in the freezer for a few minutes before preparing the drink.

Strain and Serve:

  • Strain the mixture into the chilled martini glass to ensure a smooth cocktail.
Garnish and Enjoy:
Garnish with a few fresh blueberries, a lemon twist, or a mint leaf on top for an aromatic and visually appealing touch. Serve immediately.
