  • 500g raspberries
  • 250g white caster sugar
  • 2 vanilla pods, split down the centre
  • 1l vodka



    Originally associated with Russia, Slavonic, Baltic and Scandinavian countries, vodka has become…


  1. Sterilise a 1.5 litre preserving jar (see tip, left). Tip the raspberries, sugar and vanilla into the jar.

  2. Pour half the vodka into the jar. Seal the lid, then turn the jar upside down and give it a good shake to evenly distribute the sugar. Remove the lid and add the remaining vodka.

  3. Ensure the jar is sealed and store in a cool dark place, turning/shaking once a day for the first week. After 2-3 weeks you can strain the vodka through a sieve lined with coffee filter papers or a clean kitchen cloth. Pour the vodka back into mini bottles and label. The vodka will keep its pink colour for a few months, but will be drinkable for 2 years.

This is so simple to make and tastes amazing. Made it last Christmas...would be an ideal Christmas gift.

Great recipe - super easy, tastes amazing and makes a unique gift for friends. I found the raspberries so heavy that they tore the coffee filter papers, so I used a cafetiere instead to filter the vodka.

Can I swap the vanilla pods for vanilla extract or paste? Thanks!

Thanks for your question. We'd suggest extract (not essence) rather than paste. Use 2 - 3 teaspoons depending on your preference.
