DIRECTIONS

  • Select full colored and plumb berries, avoiding stained baskets (sign of overripe or softened and decayed berries).
  • DO NOT wash until ready to use as water causes mold to form.
  • Rinse berries and place in a mixing bowl, lightly crushing to release flavor.
  • Add vodka and vanilla bean.
  • Stir and store in bottle in cool dark place for 3 weeks.
  • Strain mixture through dampened cheesecloth squeezing as much juice as possible.
  • Pour back into bottle adding sugar syrup to taste (1/3 to 1/2 cup per pint) and age another 3-5 weeks.
  • Dissolve sugar in water and bring to a boil.
  • Cool before using.
