Tini's Blackberry Vodka Delight

Usually I make blackberry liqueur in late August/early September, since I figure you can have only so many blackberry pies and make only so much blackberry jam. But this year, after reading Tini's recipe for Blackberry Vodka Delight, I knew I had to try it.

I didn't have enough regular sugar, so I used the box of sugar cubes I had stashed in the pantry for tea parties. Someone had given me a tiny bottle of Stoli blackberry essence vodka recently, so that too went into the batch. Necessity being the mother of invention, etc. etc.

Whoo Hooooooo! Can barely wait the requisite six weeks to taste this!

Oh yummy.... want to try it now too, but if the blackberries ever ripen here with all the bad weather - who knows.....

This is my standard recipie, so that works well with strawberries, raspberries, black and red currants and cherries (without the stone)
Also works well with frozen berries :)

Your blog has been making me homesick lately. I grew up in Eugene. I miss the blackberries terribly! We always did pies and cobblers with them. I also vacationed in Florence almost every summer as a child so I enjoyed your fairy faire report.
