There is not a lot as nice as fruity liqueurs. I used to make fruit snaps with fruit and vodka alone, but then I found the recipe for lemoncello and it turned it all around.
First I tried to make some lemoncello and it worked OK, then I made a batch of orangecello. This was really nice and then when I found some blackberries in the garden I decided to try the same procedure and made some blackberry liqueur and it was beautiful.
- Depending on the the type of fruit, peel either the skin of 3-4 citric fruits (no white stuff) and the juice of one of these or get a bowl full or berries
- 3/4 L of Vodka
- 1 L Water
- 200-250 g sugar
- Leave the fruit in the vodka for around 3-4 days
- Boil the sugar and water to mix and let cool
- Filter the two liquids together and leave around for a month or two before drinking it
