If there is one thing we have plenty in our garden all summer, it is raspberries. There are only so many raspberries you can eat or jams you can make so I thought I'd play with alcohol. You can do wonderful things with the right spirit and I chose to make my own version of framboise.

I like to keep it simple so all I did was dunk a couple of handfuls of fresh, clean raspberries in a jar of basic vodka. The jar was half full of raspberries. I then set this aside in a cool dark place, shaking it every other day. Its a bit like making sloe gin except you add the sugar after some time and after straining the raspberries out. I did this about a month and half later. I added about 4 tbsp of sugar to each jar (do it to your taste). I also added 3 tbsp of glycerin to improve the texture of the liqueur. You store this for another month at least and it should be ready to use. Happy days!
