The default recipe makes 50ml of gin. Use the scale buttons to increase the recipe as needed.
- 300g raspberries, fresh or frozen
- 500ml gin (see note 1)
- 75g caster sugar
- Add the raspberries, sugar and gin to a sealable, airtight jar. Sterilise the jar before use.
- Use a large spoon to stir everything together, or seal the jar and gently rock it back and forth to combine the ingredients.
- Store in a dark, cool place for between 2 weeks and 3 months, depending on how strong you want the raspberry flavour to be. Taste the gin to test from time to time, and add more sugar if you would prefer it to be sweeter.
- When the infused gin has reached your desired level of fruitiness, strain it through a muslin cloth into a clean, steralised jar. Store in a cool, dark place.
- Good varieties of gin to choose from are Beefeater, Tanqueray or Plymouth. Hendricks is a pricier but good option too if you are happy with a mild infusion of cucumber flavour.
- To sterilise the jar, first, wash it well in hot soapy water or run it through the dishwasher. Then place in a warm oven for 20 minutes. Allow it to cool in the oven before using.
- The gin will keep for up to 6 months, or longer if kept properly.
