This is a lovely raspberry liqueur. It's easy to do, just takes a lot of "sitting" time. I've given it as holiday gifts before and it has been well accepted! This is good for sipping, mixes well for a champagne cocktail, and is wonderful over vanilla or chocolate ice cream for a special dessert. I got this recipe from a book I own entitled "Food for Friends" by Sally Pasley Vargas. The vodka must be a good quality.
