Being I was so disappointed not to get any sloes last year for making some more Sloe gin.
I have been looking for recipes for making some other kind of liqueur, the favourite seems to be Raspberry vodka.
When out walking to Grantchester at the week-end we came across a box of demijohns free to a good home.
I thought these would be great for doing my raspberry vodka in, so we rescued a couple.
Once I can find some cork or rubber bungs for them I will be able to get it started in plenty of time for Christmas 🙂
I found a great site, The Cottage Smallholder with some great recipes and Ideas and I have my eye on a book called Make Mine Vodka

Raspberry vodka sounds a great idea. Show us a pic when it’s ready!
Cheers! Especially after you Toast me with a Lemmondrop Martini! 😀
Raspberry vodka? Sounds great espceially if ice cold!
@cottage smallholder Why do you need a large boot? is it so you can sleep it off in there?
It sounds tasty but don’t drink it all at once 😉
You can get the bungs from wilkinsons, they do quite a lot of wine making stuff.
Thanks for the link!
Raspberry vodka is to kill for. Much much better than sloe gin or even sloe vodka.
But the best homemade liqueur of all is lemon gin. The recipe is on my site http://www.cottagesmallholder.com/?p=112. You do need to be very patient but it’s to die for, eventually. Especially if you drive a car with a large boot.
Raspberry voda. Count me in for wanting a taste. You could always have a wine tasting tweet meet up. We will all be there. Good luck with it.
