Just in time for hot summer days! Treat yourself to a strawberry infused vodka. You'll want a few bottles of this tasty treat stored away to enjoy all summer long. Oh and did we mention, this is our new favorite gift idea!
For the recipe, you'll need:
- a large jar, a strainer, cheese cloth, a funnel, and a pretty bottle
- 750 grams (3 1/4 cups) strawberries (local organic strawberries are best)
- 375 grams (1 1/2 cup) of vodka (rum or tequila make great infusions too)
- a slice of lime
Wash, de-stem, cut and crush the strawberries (do this in a bowl using the back of a large spoon).
Place in a jar and cover with the alcohol.
Steep for a week in your refrigerator, shaking the jar once a day.
Strain out the fruit and filter a second time using cheese cloth.
Pour into a pretty bottle with the help of a funnel.
We like serving our infused vodka on ice with a slice of lime!
