“This is an easy way to make cordial and it's good for gifts! Other berries such as raspberries, strawberries or blueberries may be used in place of blackberries, and rum or brandy may be used in place of the vodka.”

Directions

  1. Pour the sugar into a 1 quart jar. Fill the remaining space with berries, but do not pack down. Fill the jar with vodka so that the berries are completely covered. Seal the jar. Let the jar stand for 2 months, shaking the jar every week. The sugar should dissolve, and the vodka will become colored.
  2. Strain the liquid through a metal sieve, and then through a coffee filter to remove the fruit. Pour into pretty bottles. Drink as a cordial, or use it to flavor lemonade or iced tea.

I've made this recipe with raspberries and it's delicious! However, instead of discarding the fruit it can be used as a topping to vanilla ice cream!

My husband and I made blackberry and blueberry cordial for Christmas gifts last year with much success! Part of the fun was going and shaking the jars for months which sounds strange, but it built up quite a bit of anticipation and also, it was nice that we could both be involved in a project... for some reason I can't get him excited about knitting or making candles, lol. The only problem we had was that once the cordials were bottled, no one believed that we had made them ourselves! Because it's been a poor berry season here, I'm going to take the advice of one of the other reviewers and make this with plums this year. Thank you for sharing not only a great recipe, but a fun project!

I made this last year using bing cherries. I pricked each cherry first to aid in releasing it's flavors & since I wasn't making this to be drank as a cordial, I decreased the sugar some. I use the cherry vodka in cherry limeades to make them more fun. ;o)
