Nalivkas (Fruit Liqueurs)

Raspberry Liqueur 1

1 lb. (450 g) fresh Raspberries
3 cups (710 ml) vodka or 1 1/2 cup pure grain alcohol + 1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup (350 g) sugar
Rinse and check the Raspberries and place them in a jar, add vodka and mix. Stir daily during the first days, later at least once a week for 3-4 weeks. Filter the mixture of berries and alcohol and transfer the liquid to a bottle. Add sugar and shake until dissolved. After three months strain the liqueur thru a cloth. Add some more sugar if necessary. The liqueur should mellow for at least 6 months before drinking, preferably for 12 months.
Raspberry Liqueur 2

300 g/10 oz Golden Caster sugar
300 g/10 oz ripe raspberries
1 standard bottle gin
600 ml/1 pint hot (boiled) water
Place the raspberries in a sterilised jar and pour on the gin. Seal tightly and leave in a warm place for 1 week, shaking the jar every day. Dissolve the sugar in the hot water until completely dissolved and leave to cool. Strain the raspberry gin through a fine strainer or coffee filter paper onto the cool syrup and stir well. Pour through a funnel into 2 bottles. Seal tightly and label. Store for a few weeks before drinking.
Raspberry Liqueur 3

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.

4 cups raspberries clean, dry
4 cups brandy
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
