Method

  1. Tip the raspberries and sugar into a 1.5L sterilised jar. Pour over the gin, seal the jar and swirl around to dissolve the sugar. Store in a cool, dark place and turn the jar once a day for the first week. After 2-3 weeks, strain the gin through a sieve. Pour the gin into mini bottles, and label. The gin will keep its vibrant pink colour for a few months and will be drinkable for a year. Use the boozy raspberries in a cocktail or trifle, or turn them into a granita.

Help! I made this gin a few days ago and some of the raspberries are turning white and a bit furry...is this normal?

Thanks for your question. The raspberries will discolour a bit in the gin but without seeing it we can't guarantee what's happening. We would assume if you have followed the recipe, that there isn't a problem.
