Strawberry Vodka

Strawberry Vodka

Strawberry Vodka! Now that sounds spectacular!

This little gem was making its way around Twitter about 2 weeks ago.

I first spotted it on David Lebovitz’s blog ~ living the sweet life in Paris.

I knew immediately I had to try it.

I followed the same direction as David, letting mine sit for 5 days.

You will need a 2 pound clamshell of berries, 2 large jars and one 750 ml bottle of vodka.

I admit I grabbed the Absolut Vodka strictly for the nice clean bottle.

Now that I have tasted the finished product I do not think the type of vodka will affect the final flavor.

The strawberries are very pale so it is time to strain the fruit from the alcohol.

I used coffee filters to get a nice clean finished vodka.

 

Straight is nice on ice though I prefer it mixed with a splash of Club Soda.

The touch of sweetness from say 7 Up would be a nice addition.

The strawberry flavor is very prominent and it has a nice smooth finish.

    Ellen was the photographer for the cookbook shoot, I was referencing her *touch* of garnish for the drink!

    I will have to look for that Firefly Vodka next time I am at the store.
    This strawberry vodka is very good, much better then I had antisipated, it really took on all the qualities of the fresh berries!
    If you have some extra stawberries give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

  5. You defintely need to try iy Kyle!
    The worst part is straining it, use a colander if you have one and strain it into a big pot first.
    It is so smooth, I am plesantly surprised at how good it is!

    Thanks for stopping by!
