Blackberry Vodka Recipe
Easy recipe for blackberry vodka
- 0.5 litre vodka
- 500 grams blackberries
- 100 grams caster sugar
- 2 vanilla pods optional
Rince and drain the blackberries to remove any bugs.
Take a steralised kilner jar and add the blackberries, sugar, one vanilla pod and the seeds from the second vanilla pod.
Top up the kilner jar with the vodka. Seal the lid and gently shake to dissolve the sugar.
Put in a cool dark cupboard. Shake daily until the sugar is all dissolved. This will take about a week.
After 12 weeks strain through a sieve and damp muslin and decant into a pretty bottle. It's important to remove the blackberries at this point or the woody centres will give the vodka a bitter taste.
