Over the years I’ve made sloe gin – very nice; damson – beautiful; blueberry – good; and now it’s time to try strawberry vodka!
350 gr strawberries
200 gr sugar
200 ml of vodka (enough to cover fruit and sugar)
Sterilise a 1/2 litre glass air tight preserving jar in boiling water. Put the strawberries and sugar in the jar and cover up to the brim with vodka, covering all the fruit and sugar (it doesn’t matter if the jar isn’t full). Put in a dry place until Christmas.
When you are ready to try the liqueur, drain liquid off the fruit to enjoy as an aperitif and enjoy the strawberries served over ice cream.
