Homemade strawberry vodka #recipe


This will need to be prepared a few days in advance!!


Strawberry Vodka…

2 pints (1.25 lbs. or 575g) strawberries, organic or unsprayed
750 ml vodka

    

  1. Wash, hull, and cut up the strawberries.
  2. Place them in a glass jar (or any container which can hold both the strawberries and the vodka, and with a tight lid!).
  3. Pour the vodka into the jar and tighten the lid. Give it a good shake.
  4. You will need to store the jar in a dark, cool place for 3-7 days (I went with 3 days) and shaken at least once a day.
  5. Once ready, strain the strawberry solids out with a fine sieve or cheesecloth.

This can be stored in the refrigerator or the freezer for several weeks (however I used mine straight away).


Lemonade…
150g sugar
250ml water
250ml fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 5-6 lemons)
500ml water

    

  1. Stir the sugar and 250ml water together in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Let boil for a minute and make sure all the sugar is dissolved, then remove from heat.
  3. Let the syrup cool then combine with the lemon juice and add 500ml of water. Add more water to taste.

To make strawberry vodka lemonade, add 1-2 shots of strawberry vodka into the top of a glass of lemonade over ice.
