This fruity raspberry gin is easy to make and you only have to wait a couple of days to reap the rewards. The recipe can be easily adapted if you fancy adding extra flavours; half a vanilla pod or some almond essence to create a Bakewell tart-flavoured gin works nicely. You needn't waste the raspberries after – blitz them up into a boozy coulis to enjoy with ice cream (but beware they do become pretty alcoholic)!

Wash the raspberries and place in a sterilised jar
Add the sugar and gin, close the lid and give the jar a good shake
Leave to steep for 2–3 days, shaking the jar each day to ensure the sugar dissolves
Strain the gin through a muslin cloth and transfer to a bottle. Best enjoyed within 1 month
