Ooh, could I please have the recipe for raspberry cordial?

You could freeze the berries, and put them in drinks, instead of ice.

Sure! Fill one gallon jar with unwashed berries. Add one pound of superfine sugar, and fill 'er up with vodka. Close jar and let sit in cool, dark place for 6 to 9 weeks. Strain into bottles or jars. I get first squeezins and second squeezins using a colander and wooden spoon. You can make smaller amounts too. I buzz regular sugar in the FP as superfine is hard to find around here.

Think blueberries would work the same?

I think so. I would smush them up a bit in the jar. Raspberries are more porous, so no need to smush.

I just sent a link to that recipe for raspberry cordials to DH. He has been asking about cordials.

You're welcome, FA!

Super, TL! It is really yummy. Important not to wash the berries.

Canadians may be familiar with the Anne of Green Gables books. Anne got her best friend Dianna drunk on raspberry cordial! So be careful!
