During our Sloe picking we found copious amounts of blackberry bushes and so we picked basket loads. After making jam we decided to make blackberry vodka. All you need is juicy blackberries, vodka, sugar and a vanilla pod. Wash the berries and fill a glass bottle a third full. Next add a third of sugar and then top up with vodka. Add a vanilla pod which brings out the blackberry taste. Shake well every day for two weeks or so and then leave for up to thee months. Once ready strain through muslin and bottle. Another tasty drink for the winter...yum!!
