This delicious raspberry-infused vodka is made with real fruit, giving it a rich and intense fruity taste. It’s so incredibly easy to make too. Just mix, shake, infuse, chill, and serve! It makes for the most perfect holiday drink or unique gift.
1 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
20.2 ounces (600 millilitres) Vodka, 80% to 100% strength
A sterilized glass jar
Additions (optional): split vanilla bean pod, citrus peels, cinnamon sticks, flavored extracts
Decorative jars or bottles
Step 1: Prepare the Raspberries
Gently wash the raspberries then place them into the glass jar.
Step 2: Muddle the Raspberries
Pour a small amount of the vodka over the raspberries in the jar until they are just covered. Use a spoon or butter knife to muddle the berries around in the vodka to break them apart and release their juices.
Step 3: Add the Vodka
Pour over the remaining vodka.
Let the vodka sit to infuse for 3 days at room temperature until it has developed a deep red hue and the berries have become very soft and slightly lost their color.
Step 4: Strain
Use a mesh sieve to strain the vodka away from the fruit and into another glass jar, medium-sized pouring jug or bottles. You can discard the fruit after straining
It’s best consumed over ice with a dash of water or soda, but it can also be used in your favorite cocktails (caprioskas, mojitos and frozen daiquiris) or desserts (granitas and sorbets) too!
