       Title: Raspberry Vodka Cordial
  Categories: beverages
       Yield: 1 serving
 
   1 1/2 pt red raspberries
   2 1/2 c  vodka
       1 c  sugar
     1/2 c  water
     1/2 ts glycerin (found in
            -drugstores)
 
   Put the raspberries into a large, shallow dish and mash with a fork or
   potato masher. Transfer the fruit and its juice to a 1-quart Mason jar and
   cover with the vodka. Seal the jar, shake to mix, and set it aside in a
   cool, dark place for 6 weeks. Strain the contents of the jar through a fine
   sieve into a 4-cup glass measuring cup. Discard the fruit; rinse the sieve
   and the Mason jar thoroughly. Fit the sieve with a damp coffee filter and
   strain the flavored vodka back into the jar. Combine the sugar and water in
   a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar 
            dissolves. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, or until
  a clear            syrup forms. Remove the pan from the heat and cool to room 
 temperature. Add
   the cooled syrup and the glycerin to the liqueur. Reseal the jar and shake
   gently to blend. Using a funnel, divide the liqueur between two 10-oz
   decanters. The Raspberry Vodka Cordial should be ready to drink in 2 or 3
   days and has a shelf life of 2 to 3 months.
