Ridiculously easy to make, tastes wonderful and makes an impressive gift for any non-teetotaler friends. Superfine sugar works the best. Preparation time does not include 10-12 days for fruit to infuse liqueur.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shake together the water, vodka and sugar to dissolve sugar.
  2. Gently mix together with the blackberries, taking care not to cut or crush the berries.
  3. Leave to infuse about 10-12 days until the berries have lost most of their color.
  4. Pour thru a fine strainer and discard the berries.
  5. Pour into decorative bottles.

This is an amazing liqueur! I could not be more pleased with the results. Its going to make a lovely addition to a gift basket for my SIL. My only complaint is that I bought a deep red bottle a few weeks ago to put it in, and I wish I had a clear one because the liqueur is a lovely, deep color. Used superfine sugar as suggested, but had to use frozen blackberries. I think it will be twice as amazing (if thats possible) towards the end of summer when we have tons of blackberries. Thanks for a great recipe. By the way, for those interested in making, 3 cups of vodka is slightly less than a 750mL bottle.

Discard the blackberries? Are you kidding? That's what white ice cream is for. ;-)

I had a loaded plum tree and used this recipe. Very good, thanks for the recipe. I took a photo, the color is a lot different than the blackberry.
