💭 What is Raspberry Vodka?
This raspberry vodka is a plain vodka that has been infused with the flavor and beautiful color of raspberries!
A number of commercially available brands of raspberry vodka exist, including: Absolut, Cîroc, Smirnoff, Stolichnaya (aka Stoli), Three Olives, Svedka, and New Amsterdam. This isn't necessarily an exhaustive list; just what I could find during a quick Google search. This vodka also isn't to be confused with raspberry liqueur, like Chambord. That's an entirely different beast.
What my raspberry vodka has these store bought vodkas don't have is a gorgeous red color and super fresh flavor.
This recipe only requires TWO ingredients. They're pictured and discussed below. See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
- Raspberries: You can use fresh or frozen raspberries, according to your preference.
- Vodka: Select a good vodka, but not one that's top shelf. You want it to be drinkable, but you also don't want to break the bank.
🔀 Substitutions or Variations

❓ Recipe FAQs
Yes! You can use either frozen or fresh raspberries, according to your preference/what you have on hand.
Let them infuse into the vodka for 3-5 days. Stop when it looks and tastes to your liking.
It should keep just fine at room temperature for about 6 weeks and in the fridge for about 3 months.
Ultimately, use whatever you prefer. I'd advise you to use something that's good but not great. Think: Smirnoff, not Belvedere.
