All Natural Raspberry Schnapps

READY IN: 1008hrs 10mins




  • Find a good sealing glass jar- An old spaghetti sauce jar with lid works nicely.
  • Please note that the above amounts are approximate, depending on the size jar you use- and how much you'd like to make.
  • Fill the jar halfway with uber-ripe raspberries.
  • Fill the rest of the way with sugar cubes.
  • Pour Vodka into the jar up to the top.
  • SEAL the jar, and shake for 10-15 seconds, and then place the jar somewhere you'll be sure to see it every day- out of direct sunlight.
  • Shake the jar for 10-15 seconds EVERY DAY for about 6 weeks- You'll notice the berries break up more, and the sugar will totally dissolve over time.
  • (It is helpful to mark the end date on your calendar- if you go over, it's no big deal).
  • AT THE END OF THE 6 WEEKS, open the jar and strain the Raspberry Schnapps through cheesecloth; I like to tightly rubber band the cheesecloth around the opening and let it drain for a few hours.
  • After it has drained, you may gently squeeze the extra juice out of the fruit; Try not to over-squeeze, or you'll get fruit as well.
  • STORAGE: You may store this in a clean glass jar; What I like to do is store the schnapps in a pretty glass decanter with a stopper you could find at a thrift store- and while you're there, you can probably find some Schnapps Glasses!
  • They look like teeny wine glasses- Some have longer stems than others.
  • SERVING TIPS: Serve at room temperature in Schnapps glasses, if you have them; If not, pour a small amount into a wine glass and enjoy.
  • NOTE: You may substitute Loganberries, Marionberries, or whatever kinds of berries or fruit as you wish.
