    This liqueur colour is a really deep purple and it tastes great. This would make an ideal homemade present or drink for a special occasion.

    Serves: 8 

    • 750ml vodka
    • 450g blackberries, fresh or frozen
    • 600g caster sugar
    • 1 cup (250ml) water

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:28days curing  ›  Ready in:28days35min 

    1. Add the sugar and water to a pan and heat slowly until all the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool to room temperature.
    2. Pour the vodka into a large, clean glass container or decanter. Add the sugar syrup and the blackberries; taking care not to crush the berries.
    3. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to infuse for at least 2 weeks. You can give it a stir every couple of days but don't crush the fruit.
    4. After 2 weeks strain the drink through a fine muslin or cloth into bottles; 1 large or a couple of small.
    5. Resist the temptation to drink it right away but leave it to sit for another couple of weeks if you can.

    I was just wondering why the actual juice of the blackberries is not used in this recipe? I make sloe gin, elderberry wine etc. and with these the fruit is always 'damaged' in some way to release the juice then the resulting solids are removed by straining before bottling.  -  01 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    First time I made this and its fantastic! So easy too! Used Morrisons cheapest vodka and it was still lovely. Using the soaked blackberries for a sorbet now.  -  07 Sep 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Just made this and bottled it, had a small taste at bottling stage just to check it was ok! Tastes fantastic and that's before the second stage of the recipe. Like the previous reviewer I used a 'cheap' bottle of vodka and I'm really pleased with results so far. Definitely one to try.  -  10 Sep 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
