- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- Fresh whole steeping spices of choice: cinnamon stick, split vanilla bean, rosemary sprig, fresh bay leaf, peeled chunk of ginger, lemongrass
- 12 cups vodka, or enough to top off your vessels
- Distribute berries amongst 6 clean, sealable bottles, carafes or large canning jars.
- Add steeping spice of choice and ¼ cup sugar to each bottle and fill to an inch of the brim with vodka.
- Cover tightly, gently shake a few times, and place bottle in a cool, dark place (such as a pantry cupboard) where you might encounter it at least every few days. Keep bottle at cool room temperature for 3 to 4 weeks, remembering to gently shake every few days. Once the desired color and flavor has been achieved, strain the liquid and add the vodka back into the vessels. Discard the solid ingredients. If desired add in fresh raspberries before gifting.
- The liqueur can keep at room temperature for up to a year and the aging with help to smooth the flavor. If fresh raspberries are added back to the liqueur it must be refrigerated but will keep for several months.
