Directions See How It's Made
- Put the raspberries and sugar in a pan and heat gently, until the berries are soft and release their juices and the sugar has dissolved.
- Transfer the mixture to a glass bowl or jar and pour in the gin. Stir, then cover with plastic wrap and seal tightly.
- Stir daily for 4-5 days, then strain into a clean bottle, seal and store in a dark pantry or the freezer. Taste after about 8 weeks, adding more sugar if necessary.
- The gin is ready to drink after about 3 months, but is best left for 1 year.
