A great way to bring the summer fruits into the holiday season!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the berries in a 1 quart glass container, being careful not to crush the fruit.
  2. Add the sugar and the vanilla bean.
  3. Fill the container with the brandy.
  4. Seal the lid and gently shake the jar, or move it around the counter to distribute the alcohol and sugar evenly.
  5. The sugar will continue to dissolve over time.
  6. Place the cordial in a cool, dark place for 2 months to allow the liquor to be infused with the flavor.
  7. Jump start the process by placing the container on a sunny windowsill for the 1st two weeks.
  8. The fluctuating temperatures of the daytime sun and the cool evenings will speed the flavor infusion.

I'm reviewing this on faith and looks. It looks just lovely and I can't wait until the fermenting period goes by so I can try it! I'll edit this once I try it

It's gorgeous! 5 stars on faith, since it will take at least two months before tasting. I suspect the flavor easily will match the appearance. I did prepare it out of I may have overdone the berries and underdone the brandy, but I have no problem with that. THANKS for posting.
