Ingredients
  

  • 6 ounces fresh Blackberries (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup fine Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 cup Vodka

Instructions
 

  • Thoroughly wash the blackberries. Combine the blackberries and sugar in a sterilized jar and mix thoroughly to coat the blackberries in sugar.
  • Stir in the water and vodka.
  • Seal the jar, and store it in a dark, cool place for at least two weeks, preferably up to two months. Shake the jar every few days, if possible.
  • Strain the contents through a fine mesh sieve into a new sealable container.
  • Use for cocktails or drink on the rocks. Store in the refrigerator for up to six months.

Notes

We tasted a two week old liqueur next to a two month old liqueur, and the differences were very noticeable.  The younger liqueur is delicious and fresh, but the older one has more complexity to it.  Both are fun though!  Store as long as you can, but don't feel guilty if you don't have two months to wait for this to blend.
