Raspberry Liqueur

Categories: Alcohol, Beverages
Yield: 1 pint

1 pt Fresh raspberries
2 1/2 c Vodka
1 Vanilla bean
1/4 ts Whole allspice
1/2 c Sugar Syrup

Select full colored and plumb berries, avoiding stained baskets (sign of overripe or softened and decayed berries). Season is May to July. DO NOT wash until ready to use as water causes mold to form.
Rinse berries and place in a mixing bowl, lightly crushing to release flavor. Add vodka, vanilla bean, and allspice. Stir and store in bottle in cool dark place for 3 weeks. Strain mixture through
dampened cheesecloth squeezing as much juice as possible. Pour back into bottle adding sugar syrup to taste (1/3 to 1/2 cup per pint) and age another 3-5 weeks.
