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 Lebovit’sz blog ~ living the sweet life in Paris.

I knew immediately I had to try it.

I followed the same direction as David, letting it 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.

Making strawberry vodka at home

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!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Looks awesome! needed some of that on the cruise 🙂 Have you tried Firefly Iced Tea Vodka or Lemonade? It’s great too!
    I’ll do without the Ellen touch…that’s the ex’s name and I’ve had enough of that name for 2 lifetimes! lol 😉

    I bet cherry will be fantastic!
    Have fun experimenting!

    So much better then I had expected.
    I can see this bottle not lasting too long.
    If you like strawberries, give it a whirl!
    You could use it in a lot of different applications!

    Have a great weekend!

  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!
