Raspberry Anaheim Liqueur

Raspberry Anaheim Liqueur
(yield is 2 litre bottles)
(published in Heat Magazine)
This liqueur is the perfect gift: colorful, delicious, and diverse in its many applications.  Raspberry and anaheim combine to both sweeten and heat your appetite and this concoction can be enjoyed in a tasting glass, drizzled over ice cream, or even added to a savory dish to add just the right note of sweetness.
3 cups sugar
12 ounces fresh raspberries
3 fresh anaheim peppers
3 cups vodka

In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, add sugar and 1 cup water and cook until sugar has fully dissolved (4-6 minutes).  Remove pan from heat and cool completely. Wash your raspberries and wash and slice your anaheim’s in half.  In a large bowl, mix raspberries, peppers, and vodka.  Add in sugar mixture and stir to incorporate.
In 10 clean, air-tight mason jars, divide the vodka mixture evenly and let sit for about 4 weeks for an intense flavor. Since you have several mason jars to work with you can vary the times of your infusions.
To serve as a gift, pour liqueur into clean decanters.
