Why have I never thought to do this… pineapple and rum let’s see how this goes. Along with some Magic Mike tonight…
Homemade Strawberry Vodka
Fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and gently patted dry
Good quality vodka
1 tablespoon granulated sugar per mason jar
For Peach Vodka use peeled, sliced peaches
For Citrus vodka use one medium lemon and one small orange, sliced into rounds and stacked in the mason jars
Pack the strawberries into each mason jar until the jar is filled to the rim. Pour in one tablespoon of sugar and fill the jar to the top with vodka. Screw the lid onto the jar tightly and gently shake the jar to agitate the berries and the sugar. Store the jars in a cool, dry place and agitate them every day for about three to four days. Strain the liquid through a few layers of cheesecloth to remove the berries and seeds. Serve.
