Wash the blackberries and discard bruised or rotten berries. Blackberry leaves are bitter, so you can pitch those too, but don't toss the stems until you've inspected them. They may have tiny blackberries on them!
Add all of your picked or washed berries into your glass jar and add just enough vodka to cover the berries thoroughly.
Keep in a cool, dark place for three days. Then, remove and taste the vodka every day to see if it has reached your desired sweetness level; this may take anywhere from 3-7 days, depending on the type of vodka used and your desired strength and sweetness.
When you are happy with the blackberry flavor, strain the berries using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth Pour blackberry-infused vodka into a clean glass bottle or jar and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
