Best Blueberry Martini Drinks

A martini is the perfect cocktail to enjoy after dinner, at the end of a tough work day, or for celebrations. But, it’s easy to get into an ordinary-martini-rut. One interesting way to change things up is to make a blueberry martini, either with fresh blueberries or with blueberry vodka. There are tons of flavor combination possibilities because blueberry goes well with herbs (like basil or mint), in desserts, and with other fruit. There are some incredibly inventive blueberry martini recipes on the internet, and they look as fantastic as they taste. Here are the best blueberry martinis:
