Can I make raspberry extract from soaking raspberry leaves in alcohol instead of using the fruit?

I have some leaves I dried for tea.

I noticed that the extract I bought from the store is clear, not red or purple like the fruit, but it might be artificial. I cant read the label other than the large print.

I think you could do it, but expect it would taste like raspberry leaves, not raspberry fruit.  

The clear extract might be artificial or made through a process not easy to replicate at home.

Ok. Thanks.
I will wait until I have fruit to start one.
 
That's my roommate. He's kinda weird, but he always pays his half of the rent. And he gave me this tiny ad:
