Berry Liqueur – a fruity and sweet Pleasure
This recipe has been optimized for the Thermomix® TM31
I tried a new liqueur on New Year’s Eve. I had a lot of frozen berries left over from the production of my summer smoothies and finally wanted some space in the fridge again. I also had some grain left from the last batch of egg liqueurs and so I tried something new.
Personally, I prefer fruity liqueurs to creamy ones and wanted to create a new hit for New Year’s Eve. This liqueur did not only convince me personally – no, also my guests found it almost too sad that the berry liqueur was used up so fast and therefore it was not allowed to serve it for drinking games. Instead, it was enjoyed later.
How do I prepare the berry liqueur with the Thermomix?
First you let the 500g frozen berries thaw a bit. Then put them together with 300g water and 100g sugar into the mixing bowl and simmer it at 100°C for 18 minutes on speed 1.
Pass the liquid through a fine sieve and collect in another bowl. Then pour the berry liquid back into the Thermomix and add 2 packets vanilla sugar and 100g of water.
Cook again at 100°C for 3 minutes on speed 1. Then add 220g grain or vodka and simmer for another 2 minutes at 100°C on speed 1.
The berry liqueur can be immediately bottled hot. It can be filtered beforehand as desired, as it can still contain a few seeds. Then you can put it directly into the fridge and let it cool down.
With the given ingredients you can make about 1 litre of berry liqueur.
