Ingredients

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

Method

  • STEP 1

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

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.
