Friends, this is my last recipe in my blackberry collection for this year, and this is one that takes a bit of time to come to fruition. It takes a fine drink to a new level of enjoyment.
2 kg washed blackberries
250 g sugar
1 bottle of blended whiskey. (It can be made with a bottle of Vodka instead of whiskey if you prefer this as a drink)
Put the blackberries in a large glass jar that can be sealed. Eg a Kilner jar, or glass sweet jar.
Chop up lemon and add to mixture
Pour in the whiskey
Put in a cool dark cupboard
Every couple of days give it a shake
After a couple of weeks, or when the sugar has completely dissolved shake then once a week
It will be just about drinkable after three months but improves greatly if left for a year. It makes a fine Chr
Strain through fine sieve and bottle.
Drink sensibly and enjoy
