Raspberry Liqueur Recipe


  • 1 lbs of Fresh Raspberries
  • 2 Cups of Vodka
  • 2 Cups of Water
  • 1 Cup of Sugar

A Bowl of Raspberries

Wash the Raspberries

Check the raspberries for any mold or over-ripe berries and discard them. Place the raspberries in a bowl. Gently wash them and dry them with paper towels.

A Jar with Raspberries and Vodka

Age the Raspberries with Vodka

Place the raspberries in a glass jar and crush them with a wooden spoon or muddler. Add vodka and stir well.

Store the jar in a cool place away from sunlight for one month. Stir the raspberries with a metal or wood spoon at least once a week.

Add Simple Syrup to Raspberry Liqueur

Add Simple Syrup

Boil 2 cups of water in a pan. Add the sugar and stir constantly until all the sugar dissolves completely. Let the simple syrup cool down. Add the simple syrup to the jar of raspberry liqueur and stir.

Store the jar back to its place and let it sit for 2 weeks. Stir the liqueur at least once a week.

Straining the Raspberry Liqueur

Strain the Liqueur and Bottle It

After at least six weeks of aging, the raspberry liqueur is ready to be strained. Get an empty jar or a container and strain the liqueur with a fine mesh strainer.

Get an empty 1 liter bottle. Wash it and dry it. Use a funnel to pour the liqueur into the bottle.
