How to Brew Blackberry Brandy From Scratch
Not only is flavored brandy delicious, it is so easy to make at home plus it can be used to make a variety of drinks. This is a great easy recipe to make your own hooch!
1го The easiest way to make blackberry brandy is to infuse fruit with spirits - or brandy in this case. You can use any liquor and make it flavored such as whisky, gin, or vodka.
2го Here's the ingredients for a delicious blackberry brandy:
1 bottle of brandy
1 pound of blackberries
Several small pieces of fresh cinnamon
3 ounces sugar
Bottles with lids that can seal tightly (2 or 3 should do it)
3го Begin by lightly crushing the blackberries in a small bowl with the back of a spoon. Place enough of the blackberries into the bottles to half fill each. Add the cloves and cinnamon pieces along with the sugar. Fill the bottle the rest of the way with brandy.
4го Cover tightly and leave untouched for 3 to 4 months. You must shake the bottles every day for the first two weeks and then once a month after that until the fruit has had time to ferment and flavor the liquor.
5го When ready, strain into another bottle to remove large pieces of fruit, cloves, and cinnamon. For added interest, you may want to include some of the fruit in the final bottle. Seal tightly and enjoy!
