Rinse berries and set aside
Pour vodka and sugar into large container and stir until sugar is dissolved
Pour in the berries and shake. You can smash the berries if you prefer. Makes no difference in end flavor
Put in dark closet for six weeks, visiting occasional to shake or stir and make sure lid isn't leaking
After six weeks, filter 3-6 times. Fine mesh strainer first. Cheesecloth second, squeezing out juice. Next, use a very fine mesh coffee filter and let it sit until it strains through. This may take all day. If you are not satisfied with clarity, strain again. If you want it more refined, the final step is a coffee filter if you can get it go through.
Pour into pretty bottles, label, and enjoy! Consume within three days after opening and DO NOT REFRIGERATE!
