Strawberry Infused Vodka

There aren’t many things better in life than when your favorite fruits come into season. Walking home from the train last week I spied the most beautiful red strawberries on my neighborhood fruit vendor’s cart. He always has the best selections, and great sales when he has a bounty of fruit to sell.


That’s the other great thing about fresh food that is in season - when there is an abundance; you are going to get a great deal at the Farmer’s Market or your local store!

I bought 2 cartons of delicious strawberries that were ready to be eaten right away, but the only problem is... I had plans to go out of town that weekend!

The only other option in my opinion is to make a yummy cocktail-friendly vodka. I found a recipe for Strawberry-Infused Vodka I’ve been wanting to try. It just has to sit for 1 week to really soak up the flavor of the strawberries. I plan to use this in countless summer cocktails this season - so be sure to check back for yummy drinks in which to use your delicious strawberry vodka!

Ingredients:

3 One bottle (750ml) good quality vodka ( I used Svedka)

3 2 pints (about 1 1/4 pounds) strawberries

Directions:

Rinse, hull, and quarter the strawberries and place them in a glass container with lid. Add vodka, cover, and agitate the jar.Store in cool, dark place for 7 days.

After 7 days, strain with a coffee filter. Store in a bottle – such as the original vodka bottle – and use in countless amazing cocktails!
