Rose Geranium Raspberry Liqueur

A picture and a recipe from my house to yours.

4 half-pints raspberries
1 cup rose geranium leaves
4 cups vodka
1/2 cup white wine
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Combine the berries, rose geranium leaves, vodka, and wine in a large jar with a tight-fitting cover.  Place in a cool, dark place to steep for one month.  Crush the berries slightly with a wooden spoon and steep for another 4 days.  Strain the liqueur, pressing the juice from the berries; pour through a coffee filter to remove any remaining residue.  Boil the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved; cool, then gradually stir into the liqueur, tasting as you go.  When the liqueur has reached the desired level of sweetness, bottle and age for an additional 3 weeks in a cool, dark place.  Makes about 1 1/2 quarts.
