Blueberry Liqueur is an exceptional drink best made fresh every year. The best thing is, you can use frozen blueberries, anytime. Blueberry liqueur is uncommonly used in mixed drinks and rarely appears on bar shelves, though it is by far a delicious liqueur with an exceptional appearance and flavor.
