This delicious boozy way of preserving summer fruit as it comes into season is great fun, but it only works if you use really good quality fruit and spirits. You need a large glass or earthenware pot 4.5-5 litres with a wide mouth and a lid - a German Rumtopf jar is perfect. Use extra strawberries and defrosted frozen raspberries if necessary. Serve the fruits sparingly with whipped cream or ice cream. Spare liquor can be added to champagne for an apéritif.
