Blackberry vodka, the perfect recipe

brunch one sip latest recipes

If you’re looking for a delicious way to use up an abundance of blackberries, why not try making your own blackberry-infused vodka? It’s incredibly easy to do, and the result is a sweet, fruity spirit that’s perfect for sipping on a warm summer evening.

Ingredients for this classic cocktail

  • 300g blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • 700ml HOUSSE Vodka

Method for the perfect balance

To get started, you’ll need to gather some blackberries, a cinnamon stick, a bay leaf, and some sugar. Place these ingredients into a large sterilised jar, and then the HOUSSE Vodka. You’ll want to swirl the jar around a bit to help dissolve the sugar, then seal it up and store it in a cool, dark place.

For the first week, it’s a good idea to turn the jar once a day to help distribute the flavours. After two to three weeks, you can strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve and then decant the infused HOUSSE Vodka into bottles. Be sure to give each bottle a label so you don’t forget what’s inside!

The colour of your blackberry-infused HOUSSE Vodka should stay bright and vibrant for a few months, and the spirit itself will be drinkable for up to a year. If you find that you have leftover blackberries after straining the mixture, don’t throw them away! You can use them in baking or meringue-based desserts for an extra burst of flavour.

Overall, making your own infused vodka is a fun and rewarding process that yields delicious, homemade results.
