I have been making flavored vodka with raspberries and blackberries.
You can use any kind of fruit, but this is what I have tried so

All you do is take 3 to 4 cups of fruit, the peel of a lemon or
lime (I use a stripper and get nice long curls of it) which helps
draw the flavors out of the fruit. Put them in a gallon sized jar
(I use a nice glass one so I can watch the progress) and cover with
about 1.75 liters of fairly inexpensive vodka. Place the lid on
and let them sit, turning the jar every day when you pass by, for
about 3 to 4 weeks.

Then strain out the berries with cheesecloth and bottle the vodka.
It can be stored at room temperature, or in the freezer. It's
great for making Raspberry Lime Rickies (vodka, club soda, ice and
a lime wedge) in the summer!

I think I am going to keep making these all through the fall with
other kinds of fruits. Meyer lemons would be great if I could find
some. Well, I hope others might try this! I used to hate drinking
vodka, but now it's pretty neat!

For something really interesting, try the berries after you've
strained them out, they pack QUITE a wallop! (I was doing this at
10 in the am so I had to watch it!!)

After making fruit flavoured vodkas try using the fruits in fruit cakes or fruit salads. WOW111

Reviewer: goldalb from Kansas USA
This recipe is excellent for using in mixed drinks. We use sugar (about a cup to 1.75 liter) in the recipes we make to serve straight for sipping--serve in a small brandy snifter. Have had success with red gooseberries, apricots, chokecherries, boysenberries and sand cherries. Jalapeno and Anaheim peppers (half-dozen to 1.75 liter) do a vodka that makes a grand Bloody Mary! The vodka-saturated fruit is a wonderful topper for vanilla ice cream, too.
