4 bags (16 ounce size) frozen blackberries (unsweetened, loose-pack)
16 cups fresh blackberries, red raspberries, candied pineapple, or peaches
6 cups sugar
4 cups 100-proof vodka


Place the berries in a gallon glass jar. Pour in the sugar and vodka and stir well. Add water until mix tops the jar. Stir gently a few times until sugar dissolves. Cover and allow to stand in a cool, dark place for 6 weeks.

Strain and filter. This the most time-consuming part but it is important for a beautiful jewel-like liqueur. First, strain through a regular kitchen strainer to remove the solids. Then pass through a jelly bag or cheesecloth. Next, use a gold coffee filter, if available. If not available, filter through the jelly bag or cheesecloth again.

Finally, filter through coffee filter paper. This will take the longest amount of time, but will be hastened if you used the previous filtration methods. Be patient and let it drip. It will take over a full day to filter all of this. Pour final product into bottles or decanters.
