Black & Blue Cordial

I sent off a batch of cordials today to a friend who'd asked me to send along the ingredient list, but I was too rushed to get one together. So since she's on LJ, and I'm on LJ, and recipes are good things, I'll post the ingredient lists by posting the recipes. :-)

Black & Blue Cordial

5-1/2 cups brandy, 80-proof
20 oz. package of frozen blackberries
12 oz. package of frozen regular blueberries
12 oz. package of frozen wild blueberries
sugar syrup (1 part white sugar + 1 part raw sugar + 1 part water, heated till dissolved)

Put brandy and frozen fruit together in a large glass container and set in a cool place out of direct sunlight.  Stir once a day or so for at least 2 weeks, but longer is better (this sat for 10 weeks).   Strain through a mesh coffee filter or cheesecloth, reserving liquid.  To every 2 parts of liquid, add 1 part sugar syrup.

See, that would never work around here. No sense of delayed grattification.

Deja Vu. Didn't we have this conversation already ?
