I have great memories of sitting by the fire at Christmas sipping my mums Raspberry Vodka, but have never tried to make it myself. As the Scottish raspberries were half price (in a few years I hope to use my own!) and with the preserving bottles on sale too it seemed like a good year to try. I am already dreaming of sitting next to our little fireplace this winter enjoying a tipple. If nothing else I LOVE the colour.
Having never made it before this is a test run - but my bottles are now happily sitting wrapped in brown paper to preserve that lovely pinky red colour. Fingers crossed for a good brew.
The recipe notes to try your vodka every now and then to see if it needs extra sugar - but having tried mine it is a bit too sharp but also sweet at the same time? Mmmm... think I will let it brew for longer before adding anything else.
