It’s Monday. Who needs a cocktail already?
Over the weekend, our friends invited us for Game Night at their apartment. First I’d like to say… game night is awesome (and I love this game). I never need to go to a bar again (I never really wanted to go to a bar anyway). Just give me a bunch of great people, games, and potluck. Oh, and a little booze is nice too. I infused strawberry into vodka and bottled it into small flasks. I’m a lightweight and even I could drink this straight. Ok, I only had a few sips but I didn’t make that ugly this-alcohol-is-strong face. I can’t wait to try other infusions… I’m thinking maybe pear, pineapple, or ginger?
Adapted from David Lebovitz
One bottle (750ml) vodka (I like Kettle One)
2 pints (about 1 1 /4 pounds, 575g) strawberries, organic or unsprayed (organic is important, you don’t want pesticides infusing this vodka)
1. Rinse, hull, and quarter the strawberries and place them in a glass container with lid. Add vodka, cover, and agitate the jar.
2. Store in cool, dark place (such as a kitchen cabinet) for 3 to 7 days, swirl around once a day.
3. After 3 to 7 days, strain with cheese cloth or a coffee filter.
4. Store in a bottle – such as these flasks or you can use the original vodka bottle – and use at your discretion.
