Will make a tasty home-made treat. Great as a Christmas gift. This is part of a few posts on infused spirits you can make at home. Make a few of them to bottle into 60-100 ml bottles as small gifts. Cass and I are making a few different flavours and giving with a 700 ml bottle of home-made cold drip coffee, biscuits, cumquat jam and home-made fruit loaf. I also plan to blog the cold drip coffee in the next fortnight or so.
raspberry infused vodka
375 g fresh raspberries
45 g caster sugar (the photo says 50 g as this is what we did the first time- but it was too sweet for our tastes and 45 g was good with a full bottle of vodka)
700 ml good quality vodka
1 L glass jar or bottle
Little bottles (I am using small milk bottles) for gift-giving (60-100 ml in size)
muslin or fine sieve
Add all ingredients to the 1 L jar. Turn to mix. Seal.
Turn once a day for a week.
This is best to drink after a month of infusing. Although, we tried some about a fortnight in and it was tasty.
Leave the raspberries in for at least a month. After this time, you can strain to remove the raspberries with muslin over a jug:
Pour the strained liquid back into the now empty bottle or organise into small bottles for giving just before Christmas.
Vanilla vodka, cumquat gin and cumquat brandy to come. Limoncello already up, click here to check it out.
