Blackberry liqueur – also known as crème de mûre – can be made several ways and with a variety of ingredients. One popular method is to mash blackberries into red wine and leave them to macerate for several days. Sometimes vodka, gin, or brandy is added to the mixture. 

My version can actually be made in about fifteen minutes, although there is an optional step of letting the blackberries steep for an hour. If you're making the liqueur to add to another recipe (like my low carb bramble cocktail – recipe coming soon!), then the quick method is sufficient. But if you have an hour spare, this step is recommended! Either way, if you've never made your own liqueur before, this is a great recipe for you to get started!

How to Make Low Carb Blackberry Liqueur

Place some fresh blackberries into a saucepan, together with some water and sweetener. I used golden Lakanto for depth of flavor (get 20% off anything in the Lakanto store if you use coupon code SAFTC) – but any granular low carb sweetener would work well. Bring to a boil then reduce to a fast simmer, using a spoon to help break the fruit apart.

After ten minutes, either let the fruit cool in the pan for an hour, or move straight to the next step and strain the fruit pulp out of the liquid using a mesh strainer.

Strain it again through cheesecloth or a coffee filter paper to obtain a clearer liqueur.

A standard 1-oz (2 tbs) serving of store-bought blackberry liqueur contains about 11g net carbs. This version is 0.3g net carbs although I should note that the nutritional data is my best estimate as the pulp of the blackberries is not consumed. And even if I included the entire amount of blackberries in the calculations, it still only comes out at 1g net carb per serving!
