First up sterilise your macerating bottle. Wash really well in very hot water then put in a low oven to completely dry out.

Wash the blackberries thoroughly and stuff them into the cooled sterilised jar. Add the sugar and vodka with a funnel, close up the lid and shake really well so the sugar is distributed nicely. Leave in a cool dark place for 3 days, giving the jar a shake a couple of times a day.

Strain the vodka into a clean bottle. To get a clear liquid, strain through muslin into a bowl first and then pour into your serving bottle. Serve ice cold, neat or with your choice of mixer.
