How To Make Raspberry Gin

  • Author: Rachel Phipps
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: Makes approx. 550ml


Making your own infused gins is so satisfying, and making raspberry gin is a really easy place to start.


  • 100g (3.5 oz) Fresh Raspberries
  • 85g (3 oz) Granulated Sugar
  • 500ml (2 cups) Good Quality Gin


  1. Combine the raspberries (if you’re using home grown make sure all leaves and bugs are removed), sugar and gin in a airtight jar (I use the Le Parfait ones, but whatever you have or can find cheaply).
  2. Keep the jar in a cool, dark place (apparently sunlight will affect the gin not coming out a pretty, jewel pink) and shake up every few days or so until the sugar is all dissolved, then once a week.
  3. Enjoy 10 weeks later, the raspberries strained out and served as a fruity gin and tonic, or in a cocktail. It will be the perfect antidote to the January blues!
