DIY Raspberry Liqueur
Raspberry liqueur isn't hard to find, but the bottles you can buy are all over the map. Some options are candy sweet, while others are cough syrup-strong. Making your own liqueur gives you control over how sweet and boozy the end result is—you're likely to end up with something that better suits your sugar tolerance.
- You can use frozen or fresh berries. Often frozen berries are sweeter and less expensive. If using frozen, defrost them before using.
- If you're using vanilla bean, the pod can be used for another infusion after this one or to make vanilla extract since it will still have plenty of flavor left.
