Blackberry-Flavoured Vodka

  • 750ml vodka (cheap vodka is fine)
  • 100g sugar
  • 500g blackberries
  • zest of 1 lemon

750ml airtight bottle

Thoroughly wash the blackberries. Put the sugar, lemon zest and fruit into the bottle. Pour as much vodka as will fit in the bottle. Lightly shake the bottle to mix all the ingredients together. Label and then store in a cool dry place. Make sure you shake the bottle once a week and leave to infuse for about 3 months. After thwo months the vodka will need to be filtered. Tip out the vodka into a jug through a sieve. Make sure everything comes out of the bottle. Pour the infused vodka back into the bottle and top up with more vodka. Infuse in a dark place for a further month and then it will be ready!

This vodka could be poured into smaller bottles and given to friends and family for Christmas presents. It would also go great in a rich meat gravy; just a splash cooked down or drizzled over a steak in the last 30 seconds of cooking!
