Cordials are my new favorite thing. Although the ingredients—fresh fruit, sugar, and vodka—have all been my favorites for quite some time. Ahem.
These vodka infusions are so easy to make, yet no one will believe you made them yourself. Just grab your favorite fruit, but if you don’t know where to start, try a cane berry like raspberry or blackberry first.
In Central Texas we have a wild blackberry called the dewberry, and boy are they delicious. Today I’m making a half-batch of dewberries that my dad picked from a field on our Fayetteville ranch, and a full batch of fresh peaches from a tree in my backyard in Bastrop.
