Blackberry liqueur

This recipe is fashioned after Chambord substituting raspberries with blackberries from the neighborhood. First a little background on Chambord.
Chambord Liqueur is a 16.5% abv raspberry liqueur modelled after a liqueur produced in the LoireValley of France during the late 17th century. The Chambord is made from red and black raspberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac.

3 liters fresh blackberries
3 cups or .7 liters simple syrup
Zest of 2 oranges
1.5 cups honey
3.75 cups Brandy
6 cups 40-50% neutral or vodka
1 vanilla bean split

  • Muddle the blackberries, simple syrup, honey

    Sir in the vodka, Brandy, orange zest, and vanilla

    Seal container and store in a cool dark location until liquid smells and tastes strongly of blackberries, about 7 days.

    Strain the mixture with mesh strainer into clean container. Do not push on solids to extract more liquid.
