This homemade raspberry liqueur (or raspberry vodka) is so easy to make and is well worth the effort! A beautiful bright red and slightly sweet elixir made with only three ingredients: raspberries, sugar and vodka.
A couple months ago, Debbie and I made this raspberry liqueur. You will never believe how easy it is to make and how good it tastes!
Now, in both of our fridges there is a mason jar full of a beautiful bright red homemade raspberry liqueur (or raspberry vodka) made with three simple ingredients: raspberries, sugar and vodka. We have been dreaming up ways to use this delicious raspberry elixir for a while now! Its going to be amazing and we are pretty excited to share this recipe with you.
How to make homemade raspberry liqueur:
This fabulous raspberry liqueur (or raspberry vodka) can be made in four super simple steps:
- split a 600g bag of frozen raspberries or 4 cups of fresh raspberries into two large mason jars.
- split a 750 ml bottle of vodka between the two mason jars.
- add one cup of sugar to each mason jar.
- screw on the lid, give it a good shake and then put the jar in a cool place for 3 weeks up to 2 months.
A FEW TIPS:
- The longer you let the raspberry liqueur (or raspberry vodka) sit, the more raspberry flavor your vodka will get.
- You can make the raspberry liqueur as sweet as you like by just adjusting the sugar a little. I would suggest following the recipe as is the first time and then adjust on the next batch.
Yes, there will definitely be a next batch!

Unfortunately this recipe isn’t something you can whip up and enjoy in tandem with us this weekend. It takes at least a month or two months, to develop the flavor fully. But let me tell you, its worth the wait! I’m fairly certain you won’t find anything as good as this in the liquor store, and its incredibly easy to make. Just raspberries, sugar and vodka. We even used frozen raspberries.
This beautiful liquid is like a dessert all on its own, served on the rocks, but the ways you can use it are endless… Over ice cream, in a bellini, with champagne as a mimosa, mixed with fruit juice like a punch. The list goes on and on…
