Utensils Tips

Here is a list of the simplest utensils that you can use; the ones Mom should already have in the kitchen:)

– cheesecloth
– saucepan
– small funnel
– glass bottles, or storage containers, for bottling and serving, you can either use the glass Jar you used before, or just buy a second one. 


Clean the gooseberries, remove outer shell and stem rinse.

Prick the gooseberries with a clean sterilized needle.

Place the pricked gooseberries together with the sugar and gin, into your aging container close and agitate.

Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Olive Lavender Cherry Liqueur

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for a minimum of 2 months.

After 2 months strain the liquid, squeezing the pulp gently.

It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the remaining liquid and juice.

If you still need to strain your liqueur further due to lack of clarity, you can strain it 1 more time through a coffee strainer.

Letting it age for longer before filtering will bring out a fuller taste, 6 months of aging is not unusual with gooseberry gin.

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Gooseberry Gin Liqueur Recipe!

You now need a bottle and a label which are cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly, if you put it into a cheap bottle, people will make fun of you. BUT, if it looks good, people will rave about it!
