  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.

Why do you put sugar into raspberry gin surely there's no need to

Hey, Esther from the food team here! The sugar helps to preserve the raspberries. It also makes it more of a liquor that can be drunk simply over ice. Thanks fro your question!

Thanks for your question. You can turn the jar upside down and then back upright to mix the ingredients.

Thank you, I did think that turning upside down might be the case but I didn't want to take any chances. I will let you know how it turns out.

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.
