Blackberry cordials

Sunday I had some creative fun. A month or two ago I made a version of Triple-Sec from freshly squeezed oranges-- it was the tastiest sweet booze I've set taste buds to. Along the same vein, I thought a cordial made from local blackberries I bought during the summer would be even better. After thawing them out, I ran them through the juicer, mixed with a squeeze of lemon and obscene amounts of cane sugar, then brought it all up to a boil. After 10 minutes or so, I shut it down and let it cool. Mixing it with vodka made it look like this.
Perfect for a homemade ice-cream topping next summer...can't wait.
