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.
