Ways to Use Blueberry Syrup

Once you make a batch of this syrup, you’ll want to use it in everything!

  1. Cocktails: Use blueberry syrup as a sweetener in your cocktails to add a fruity twist. It pairs well with gin, vodka, tequila, and whiskey. Try it in a blueberry margarita, blueberry mojito, or blueberry gin and tonic. My favorite way to use it is this blueberry lemon drop martini!
  2. Mocktails: Blueberry syrup is also great in non-alcoholic drinks like lemonade, iced tea, or soda water. Add a splash of blueberry syrup to your drink for a sweet and fruity flavor.
  3. Desserts: Drizzle blueberry syrup over ice cream, pancakes, waffles, or cheesecake for a sweet and fruity topping.
  4. Breakfast: Use blueberry syrup as a topping for oatmeal, yogurt, or granola. It’s a delicious way to start your day with a burst of flavor.
  5. Marinade: Mix blueberry syrup with soy sauce, garlic, and ginger to make a flavorful marinade for chicken, pork, or salmon.
  6. Salad Dressing: Use blueberry syrup as a base for a salad dressing. Mix it with olive oil, vinegar, and Dijon mustard for a delicious vinaigrette.
  7. Baking: Add blueberry syrup to your baking recipes for a fruity twist. It works well in muffins, scones, or cakes.

How to Store Blueberry Syrup

Let the syrup cool to room temperature before transferring it to a container. Use an airtight container with a tight-fitting lid. Pour the blueberry syrup into the container and seal it tightly. Store the blueberry syrup in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You can freeze the syrup if you want to store it for longer than a month. Pour the syrup into a freezer-safe container or ice cube tray, and freeze for up to 6 months.
