Blackberry Vodka

Post by shinobi » 30 Aug 2007, 16:25

Here's a new recipe that my sister passed over to me. (After the judicious use of thumbscrews!!)

Into a 1 litre bottle, put approx 12oz blackberries. Add 4 good tablespoons of demerera sugar, 8 cloves and some broken cinnamon stick.

Then top up with cheap Vodka. A 75cl bottle should be enough. Put the lid on and wait...

Give the bottle a good shake every couple of days to help the sugar dissolve.

After a few weeks/months/whatever you can stand, strain the liquid into another bottle, and eat the berries with ice-cream. Alternatively, youy could crush and strain them and add the juice to the vodka.

Lethal and gorgeous. :lol:

Blackberry Vodka & Champagne

Post by simoncarter » 23 Mar 2008, 12:15

Made some blackberry vodka with the bumper crop of blackberries from the back garden. Can't remember precisely but think basic recipe was to fill a large necked 750 ml bottle with blackberries, add 100g or so of sugar and top up with cheap vodka. Tastes lovely on its own but goes fantastically with champagne as a kind of take on a Kir Royale. Tried making one lot with a couple of cloves and some cinnamon added and it was even better.
