If you’re looking to create an impressive Christmas gift, adds something interesting to your drinks cabinet or use up some blackberries – this is the recipe for you. But you have to do it now while blackberries are in season.

Of all the recipes I’ll share with you, this is the one that you just have to try

You can buy them in the shops of course but nothing beats picking them yourself or of course employing young children to pick them for you 🤣 Choose the firm, black berries and be sure to leave enough behind for the birds and other foragers.

You Will Need

750ml vodka – I use the cheap stuff but it’s probably better with better quality

450g fresh (or frozen) blackberries

600g caster sugar

250ml water

Method

  • In a pan combine the sugar and water
  • Heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Allow the sugar syrup to cool completely
  • Put the blackberries, vodka and sugar syrup in a large jar
  • Gentle stir all of the ingredients together and seal
  • Store the jar in a dark place for 2-3 weeks – check on it every couple of days and gently stir or shake the contents.
  • Strain the mixture. You can use the left behind boozy berries in other things. Why not freeze them to add to co*cktails.
  • The liquid should be poured into a bottle and allowed to age.
  • A couple of months is best but you should wait at least another 2-3 weeks.

I decorate the bottles with a little leftover wrapping paper and ribbon. The Liqueur is smooth and delicious. You can drink it on its own over ice or use it to make co*cktails.

      1. If using frozen blackberries do I de thaw first or put frozen in jar?

        Reply

        1. I would just leave them frozen

          Reply

  1. Can this be made with a different type of alcohol? I don’t care for vodka!

    Reply

    1. I have only tried it with vodka I’m afraid but the sugar and blackberries completely transform the flavour.x

    2. I’m going to try this recipe with whiskey.
      I used to love this certain blackberry cognac, but suddenly can’t find it anymore. I’ve found a couple of blackberry whiskeys that were okay, but they just didn’t have as strong of a blackberry flavor as the cognac. We’ll see what happens 😁

      1. Please let us know how its turns out. I too like cognac, sound yummy.

      2. I’m with you, love to hear how it turns out!!

      3. You can buy Tonin Black Berry syrup and mix that with your whiskey of choice. I mix this with a good Brandy to make my own Blavkberry Brandy. Used for medicinal purposes only of course.😮😊. If you can’t find this syrup in stores, it is available from Amazon.

        1. Hi Charley
          For me the joy of collecting the blackberries and making something from scratch in my own kitchen, with no added chemicals or processing, is the main reason for the recipe.
          There’s always a shortcut but I don’t think that’s what people are looking for when they visit here 😁

      4. My daughter found that same problem. We have an abundance of blackberries every year and our season has just started.

        Reply

  2. How much does this yield? Does it have to be kept cold or is it shelf stable when finished?

    Reply

    1. It makes around a litre. It’s fine in a cupboard and I’ve tasted some that’s 2 years old and it was amazing. We have a 3 year old bottle that we’re hoping to test this Christmas so I’ll let you know 😊

  3. Can you only use cattle sugar?
    And how long can you leave in jar before straining?

    Reply

    1. If you don’t have caster sugar, you can use ordinary granulated sugar

      Reply

      1. Could honey be used instead of sugar?

        Reply

        1. I’ve never tried it with honey x

          Reply

  4. Blackberry season is around the corner and I’m definitely going to make this. I’m wondering what would happen with more blackberries? Maybe half more? I will come back and tell you, once I try it

  5. Thank you for this recipe, I just made a double batch, one batch with Everclear and one with Bulleit Bourbon.

  6. Could you give full recipe by saying cups, tsp, TBSP, etc.. thank you. Cannot wait to make this recipe. Just harvested Blackberries.
    Thank you..

    1. Hi Tiffanie, I’m afraid I don’t know the cup measurememts as I do this by weight. You might be able to find a conversion chart online.

  7. I’m new to this…….
    How do you seal the bottle?

    Reply

    1. Ypu fasten it very tight or use a flip top 😊

      Reply

  8. I’m assuming this recipe would work with any berry? Blueberry, huckleberry, etc…

    Reply

  9. What is caster sugar? I’ve not heard of that

    Reply

    1. It’s similar to granulated sugar but more finely ground

      Reply

      1. Use a grinder with regular sugar and voila! Caster sugar

        Reply

  10. Love this recipe, excited to make some for the holidays! What size jar did you use?

    Reply

    1. I actually use one of those big glass drinks dispensers. It’s brilliant for when you come to bottle as you can just use the tap 👍

      Reply

  11. I just made some with blackberries and raspberries.. the amount of fruit a bit more than the recipe called for, but I’m anxious to try…. Will bottle in another week or so and hopefully will be ready for gifts by Christmas!

    Reply

  12. What size jar do you start the blend in?

    Reply

    1. I use one of 5hose big glass drinks dispensers – you know the ones with a tap on them x

      Reply

  13. Have you ever left the berries in longer then 3 weeks? I forgot my jar…it’s been about a month😬

    Reply

    1. I think you’ll be fine 🙂

      Reply

  14. While aging do you still keep it in a dark place and does it have to be refrigerated at all? 😊

    Reply

    1. Do you mean while the berries are in? I tend to keep it out of direct sunlight but not in the dark or fridge. When bottled you treat it as you would any alcohol.

      Reply

  15. What measurements?

    Reply

    1. The measurements are in the recipe 👍
