Raspberry Liqueur/Brandy

Raspberry Liqueur/Brandy

2 sterile 1quart mason jars
2cups fresh raspberries- preferably 1/2-red and 1/2-black
1cup brandy
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
Two-1/2inch pieces of vanilla bean


In a sauce pan. Add sugar,honey, crushed berries and vanilla bean.
Simmer for 5 min. Cool. Stir in the brandy.
Divide between the jars and fill with vodka. Seal with caps and lids.
Age for at least 1 month, 3 months is better. Strain. Pour into a bottle.
I leave the vanilla in the bottle, it seems to deepen the flavor.
