A couple months ago, Debbie and I made this raspberry liqueur. You will never believe how easy it is to make and how good it tastes!
Now, in both of our fridges there is a mason jar full of a beautiful bright red homemade elixir of raspberries, sugar and vodka. We have been planning to make a number of concoctions we have dreamed up in the last couple of months to make use of our homemade raspberry liqueur and its finally ready. Its going to be amazing and we are pretty excited to share this recipe with you.
Unfortunately this recipe isn’t something you can whip up and enjoy in tandem with us this weekend. It takes at least a month or two months, for full flavor, for this baby to be ready. But let me tell you, its worth the wait! I’m fairly certain you won’t find anything as good as this in the liquor store, and its incredibly easy to make. Just raspberries, sugar and vodka. We even used frozen raspberries.
This beautiful liquid is like a dessert all on its own, served on the rocks, but the ways you can use it are endless… Over ice cream, in a bellini, with champagne as a mimosa, mixed with fruit juice like a punch. The list goes on and on…
You must make some. Debbie and I have another batch getting ready for summer!
Have a great weekend everyone!
