Ingredients

  • 350g raspberries
  • 150g sugar
  • 700ml bottle of gin

Method

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
ADD OTHER FLAVOURS TO THE GIN
  • For a raspberry and lemon gin, add the stripped peel of 1 unwaxed lemon to the gin before steeping.
  • For a raspberry and vanilla gin, add a stripped, halved vanilla pod to the gin.
  • For a raspberry Bakewell gin, add a few drops of almond extract to the finished infusion.
  • You can swap the gin for vodka to make raspberry vodka.
