Blueberry cheesecake comes alive in a classic martini. This sweet cocktail is just what the crazy day ordered.
Some days, you look up baffled. Everything was going so smoothly. The chores were done, the kitchen cleaned and tidied and all that was left was to make a simple supper for you and your man. A supper you should have been able to make in your sleep with one hand tied behind your back...
and somehow, this happens...
You're not sure why, or how it happened. It just did. Some freak accident tornado rolled through your kitchen and dirtied every single pot and pan within arms length - and all the forks to boot - with only one butter knife surviving to tell the tale.
That's when you decided, screw it. Throw a cocktail shaker on to that pile of things to clean up because the only way I am getting through this is with something strong. Like blueberry cheesecake, or better, a blueberry cheesecake martini.

True story. Swear to God.
always good to know that I'm no alone with a horribly messy kitchen at times. it seems like the simplest things get out of control so easily.
It's those kitchen gremlins! They sneak up on you just when you think it's all clean and tidy. I have a whole family living in my kitchen, yes, that's it, kitchen gremlins. And definitely a good excuse for that martini ! 😀

My kitchen looks like that every time I walk in there. It's a losing battle.
I'm usually not a fan of creamy drinks but this one looks amazing! I have some whipped cream vodka in the freezer - might try that instead of the vanilla. It's too cold to go get any!
Sounds like the perfect solution to me! That is one awesome sounding drink. Not to mention it LOOKS mighty tasty!

Screw it indeed! Bottoms up!
Haha! That looks amazing Kita! What a perfect way to just say *ahem* excuse my french EF it and just kick back.
Can I enjoy this with a spoon? Because it kind of looks like it needs to be. Or maybe a spoon-straw. Remember those?
Wow this look great! Thanks for sharing
I do not want to even count how many times in a day I do dishes (no dishwasher)-however I tell myself that all this dish washing does improve my completion time, so there is some sort of benefit. However, finding one of these on my clean counter after all the dish washing is a better benefit! Thanks for sharing!

My kitchen looks like that all too often! I had made a mess by 9am on Sunday morning. The martini sounds awesome, can't wait to try it. I love fruity martinis!
The Mom Chef ~ Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time says
Amen, amen and freakin' amen. My kitchen looks like that way too often. I'm loving this martini but I've never heard of strawberry liqueur. I need to find me some. I need to make this asap. I don't have blueberries, but I know I can make do with SOMETHING. Way big yum. We all need fortification for the tasks at hand, right?
Daydreamer Desserts says
So true, what's one more little cocktail shaker and martini glass when you are surrounded by chaos. -Been there way more than I'd like to admit... CHEERS!
Love your pictures and recipe! *Smiles* This has happened to me one too many times! Nothing like a strong drink to cheer you up. Have you ever tried a blueberry pancakes martini? Blueberry vodka with butterscotch schnapps and it is AMAZING.
Lauren at Keep It Sweet says
My kitchen looks like a mini version of that way too often! I could use a glass or two of this:-)

This sounds like a great cocktail! This would certainly help me get through my messy kitchen.
Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. says
My kitchen looks like this at least once a week, I hate it! I think you made the right decision, this delicious drink needed to happen!
Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts says
Can I come over right now and have one of these? So delicious, and much needed after today!
oooooooo... blueberries are my favorite fruit and while I'm not a big drinker, for THIS I would make an exception.
Also, MY kitchen never looks that way *cough cough* 😛 Btw, I have some swamp land in Arizona if you're interested in buying it.
Amazing! I actually saw this on Stumble Upon before I got to food buzz. It's incredible and I'm buzzing it as well as stumbling!
The Culinary Lens says
I could o with some of that.. I thought that photo was Black and White when I first looked at it.
That's the perfect solution! Great picture too.
Dionne Baldwin says
Uh-oh! It sounds like it was a rough night. 🙁 If we were closer I'd help you clean up and keep making you those martinis. I'd be calling the party bus to take me home...
I've never had a martini quite like this before! I think I need to do some market research and give this a try. 😉
Jenny @ Savour the Senses says
I don't know if this means I have a problem, but this makes me want to skip dinner and make these haha YUM!!
Jessica @ How Sweet says

Nava Krishnan says
