Recently, I ran into this nice gentleman named Stanley who convinced me to sample some of his Raspberry Cordial. It tasted a little sweet but for all you women who love sweet alcohol, this one’s for you. It was delicious!

1 qt. berries (red or black raspberries)
1 qt. vodka
1 cup sugar

Thoroughly mix the sugar and vodka into a gallon carboy. Add berries (without crushing) and stir gently. Attach either an airlock or secure a balloon with a rubber band to the opening. Wait 6 weeks at room temperature for fermentation (DO NOT add yeast). Drain off the sediment (called lees) and store in corked bottles. You can drink immediately but I recommend cooling before drinking.

Bring it into the winery with 3 bottles and I’ll cork it for you. Enjoy:)
