If you’re not a pie person, you might as well quit while you’re ahead, because this post is exclusively dedicated to the perfect sugar-filled pastry. What other sweet treat is traditionally known for literally bringing people together, during the holidays, significant events or elsewhere. However, not all pie flavors take the cake, if you will. Today celebrates one of the more classic (and palatable) pie fillings that put other fruit-flavored desserts to shame – good ol’ blueberry. Because pies take a substantial amount of time to construct, cook and (most annoyingly) cool, we’re going to switch things up by celebrating the day with – you guessed it – blueberry pie-themed booze.

Blueberry Pie Martini: (serves 1)

  • 1 1/2 Ounces Vanilla Vodka
  • 2/3 Ounce Blueberry Vodka
  • 2/3 Ounce Lime Juice
  • Crushed Graham Crackers and/or blueberries for garnish

Pour the vanilla vodka, blueberry vodka and lime juice into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Dip the rim of the martini glass into either water or lime juice. Then dip it into the crushed graham crackers. Strain drink into glass and garnish with 2 blueberries if you like and serve.
