It's that time of year...

..when we start the old raspberry vodka. The finished vodka is SO delicious you can drink it neat in a little shot it's that sweet and lovely. Or have a tall drink with tonic. Either way I won't be drinking any for the forseeable future what with little bean on the way. This batch will be enjoyed by G no doubt, with some going to friends/family as presents (if theres any left a'course).



Here's how you do it
Step 1: Go to a 'pick your own' and pick lots of lovely raspberries (you can use supermarket raspberries, but it's not as nice a flavour)
Step 2: Once home, wash the raspberries and pick out and dodgy ones and terilise a big old 2 litre Kiliner jar (we use sterilising tablets - easy)
Step 3: Measure out 300g of raspberries and 350g of granulated sugar
Step 4: Pop the raspberries in the sterilised jar, pour the sugar on top, and 1.5 litres of cheapo vodka on top of that. Give it a swirl around (don't stir - just swirl the jar as its all sterile inside)
Step 5: Put the jar in a cool dark place and let it fester. Once a week or so give it a swirl.
Step 6: After 3 months minimum (or anytime up to a year) sterilise some 1 litre bottles, strain the raspberry vodka through a piece of muslin into a bowl and pour the beautiful red syrupy vodka into your bottles.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi there,

    I'd like to get a couple of pieces made as part of a 'push present' for my wife. Is there a way to contact you to see if this is possible?

    I don't really understand twitter and can't locate an email address. I'll check back in a few days to see what you say.

  2. Hi there,

    I'd be happy to help with your wife's present. The best way to order a papercut (and to see what colours, framing options etc are available) is to visit my shop here:

    Look forward to hearing from you!
