Blackcurrant and Gooseberry Vodka

I made fruity vodka!

This is such a simple recipe, and it was very tasty!
I have a really nice farm shop near me - New Manor Farm Shop, if you are interested. One of the things they sell there is frozen fruit. Freshly picked and then frozen.

I went home, defrosted the fruit (blackcurrants and gooseberries), blended it up, poured the fruit into jars and topped up with vodka! 
Honestly, how easy is that?

I used about 100g of fruit per jar (350ml jar), and then about 250ml vodka.
Any kind of vodka will do, as you will mask the taste.

If you wish to turn it into a liqueur, which you will be able to drink straight (when chilled), then add approximately 100g of fruit, 75g of sugar, and top the jar up with vodka (about 175ml). 

I left them about 2 weeks before straining them to remove the fruit.

I've also made some sloe gin, that has been going for about a month now, but won't be ready for at least a few more weeks.

I hope you enjoy them, let me know if you make it!
