Ingredients

  • raspberries 500g
  • sugar 200g
  • gin 70cl
  • sugar syrup (optional)

Method

  • Step 1

    Put the raspberries, sugar and gin in a clean mason jar. Mix, seal and store in a cool, dark place for a few weeks, tasting regularly and giving the jar a shake every other day. If you want a sweet liqueur, add sugar syrup to taste.

  • Step 2

    Once you’re happy with the flavour, strain out the boozy raspberries – try swirling them into ice cream – and decant the gin into sterilised bottles.
