Homemade Liqueurs and Infused Spirits
I am a sucker for cinnamon and blueberries; I wish I knew why. Maybe it’s because I’m not much of a cinnamon freak, and I find its juxtaposition with the blueberries generates barely a hint of the Red Hots Saturday-matinee-movie sucker punch so ubiquitous in -cinnamon-flavored products. This liqueur has a beautifully balanced flavor and is a gorgeous color as well.
Makes about 1 quart

Muddle the blueberries and simple syrup with a wooden spoon in a half-gallon jar. Stir in the rum and cinnamon.
Seal the jar and put it in a cool, dark cabinet until the liquid smells and tastes strongly of blueberries, about 7 days.
Strain the mixture with a mesh strainer into a clean quart jar. Do not push on the solids to extract more liquid.
Seal and store in a cool, dark cabinet. Use within 1 year.
