Step 2: Muddle the Raspberries

Pour a small amount of the vodka over the raspberries in the jar until they are just covered. Use a spoon or butter knife to muddle the berries around in the vodka to break them apart and release their juices.

  • If you are using additions, they can now be placed in the jar.

Stir to combine before sealing the jar tightly with the lid and shaking well to evenly distribute the berries.

Let the vodka sit to infuse for 3 days at room temperature until it has developed a deep red hue and the berries have become very soft and slightly lost their color.

Step 4: Strain

Use a mesh sieve to strain the vodka away from the fruit and into another glass jar, medium-sized pouring jug or bottles. You can discard the fruit after straining

Step 5: Serve and Store

The raspberry-infused vodka will keep indefinitely. You can store it in the refrigerator or freezer and out of direct sunlight.

It's best consumed over ice with a dash of water or soda, but it can also be used in your favorite cocktails (caprioskas, mojitos and frozen daiquiris) or desserts (granitas and sorbets) too!
