Recipe - Bramble Berry Vodka

This hot weather has been doing crazy things to our berry patch at the kitchen garden.  We have so many berries ready for picking and many more ripening on the bushes.  Little T has been really enjoying picking them and enjoying the berry crumbles even more. 


A couple of years ago I made some blackberry vodka and it was delicious, so I thought I might have a go at a mixed berry version.  He's how I made it...

Bramble Berry Vodka

You will need...
A few handfuls of berries (we used blackberries and the mystery berries, you can read about them here)
Sugar to taste (around 100 g)
Vodka (the cheap kind is fine)
A large jar

First give the berries a good wash...


...then add them to your jar...


...tip in the sugar...


...and cover with vodka.  


Give the jar a good shake and leave in a cool dark place for a few weeks shaking every day until the sugar is dissolved.


When your vodka is ready it will be look all gorgeous and berry coloured.  It can now be strained and bottled.  Be sure to have a little taste to check for sweetness and adjust if necessary (you might need to test a few times just to be sure).  Oh and try not to drink it all at once...

What's your favourite thing to make with summer berries?  I would love to hear in the comments below...

Enjoy!
