Blueberry Liqueur

Now that we have been out in the woods collecting blueberries, it's time to use a small part to try new strange things. Here I found a recipe for blueberry liqueur. The question is if it sounds more exciting than it is.
Beginning of blueberry liqueur.
In the original recipe there was syrup, but the person who created it did not like it so I exchanged it all for sugar. Which gives this recipe:
  • 460 grams of blueberries
  • 420 grams of sugar
  • 1000 grams of vodka

With much less blueberries so I had to recalculate the recipe:
  • ~ 200 grams of blueberries
  • ~ 183 grams of sugar
  • ~ 435 grams of vodka

Almost 200 grams of blueberries
Everything measured, almost 435 grams of vodka.
 Use a sanitized glass jar and start by putting in the blueberries. Then the sugar and finally the vodka.

Blueberries and sugar, and a glimpse of the vodka.
When the vodka is in the can I put it on the window sill with the lid shut. The bottle is not completely full, so it should be fine even if it gets hot in the window.

Everything in place.
The plan now is to wait 2 months before it's time to strain out the berries and put the liqueur in bottles. However, I will shake the jar somewhat from time to time so that the sugar dissolves faster.
