This can be done with almost any fruit/season

To make Raspberry Cello
Fill mason jar full of Raspberry loosly
Fill jar with Ever Clear
Wait 4-6 weeks
In a 275 ml bottle add 1/2 - 2/3 full of mix (strained in a french press) and then start adding simple syrup to taste (2 part sugar to 1 part water)

Wawa,

lemon cello and various flavours are a type of very high proof liqueur, the recipes call for 'everclear' which is a high proof grain alcohol similar to vodka .. roughly 120 proof I believe (60% alcohol) with a neutral flavour.

I am not personally interested in making a Raspberry Flavoured Vodka. I have cooked professionally for almost 20 yrs. Even before becoming a wine making apprentice, I could figure that out. I want some "kick". But I also want it a little "thick", mouth feel if you will. I was thinking like40-60 percent, without discounting the fine spirit, and sure enough, not discounting the essence of the fruit involved, they all sound like raspberry flavoured av-gas.. I would rather add way more fruit, (in this case raspberries), than to water it down with the addition of any excess water outside of that introduced by the simple syrup. Since I first posted this request, I have looked at at least 20 different recipes and all sound like they make raspberry flavored vodka. After the addition of the simple syrup and water would these turn out a little less flammable? The additionof glycerin we will save for further along in this discussion. I want to make something nice to share with those who appreciate a nice cordial, not something to start their beards on fire. (Yeah, some of the gals here have beards and smaoke stogies) LMFAO now!!

Troy,
My cellos are "thick" @ a 2-1 simple syrup you already have thickness (moouthfeel) It is served COLD which again will thicken it. Thing of Peppermint Schnaps from a freezer.
All I can say is "try it" you may or may not like it.
You will never know if you don't

If you use the high octane everclear what do you think the final proof is? If I were to use 80 proof or even 100 proof liquor what would I end up with? While were on the subject, if I was to want a little tang to it would you use lemon juice, zest?
Thanks
