Raspberry Liqueur – Make Chambord

Why go out and buy Chambord when you can make your own at a fraction of the cost?
I whipped up some liqueur a couple of days ago. I got the idea from the compleat Meadmaker (Ken Schramm). He uses it to add to meads to make melomels or adjust them by adding this good stuff. It is also just good by itself and for aging. It’s really simple and better than Chambord:

Raspberry Euphoria

A fifth of vodka (cheap and tasteless)
2 cups sugar
~3 cups raspberries

I just mixed that all up in a plastic container I got honey in and am letting it sit. The first couple of days, you want to mix it up a bit just to make sure the sugar gets mixed in, but after that you just let it sit for 3-4 months and extract all of the goodness out of the berries. Then you strain the liqueur and bottle it or use it or whatever you want to do. I just tasted some after 3 days and it is already quite wonderful! I wonder if it will make it to 3 months…
