Thoroughly wash and dry a 500ml clip top / preserving jar. Put the raspberries in the bottom of the jar.
Add the sugar....
.... then fill the jar right to the top with gin.
Clip the top on firmly, then gently shake and turn over until the sugar has completely dissolved in the gin.
Store the jar in a cool, dark cupboard for at least 10 weeks. The flavour and colour of the raspberries will infuse into the gin. Every few weeks, turn and shake the jar gently. The gin will keep for a year or two if kept cool and dark.
Makes 500ml of raspberry gin - perfect to fill 2 small 250ml gift bottles.
