Game Night and Vodka

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?

 

Strawberry Vodka
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.

I used Jam Labelizer, a free website with label templates.

    YUM!!!!! Looks delish! Can you eat the fruit after it has been in the vodka? A friend of mine makes pineapple vodka and we eat the pineapple; it’s potent and soooo good!

      Pineapple sounds delish. The strawberries really lose all of their flavor (they actually turn white) so I remove them because they just taste like seedy vodka. I can’t awit to try the pineapple. I’m thinking mango would be good like that also?

  2. yum!! TFS

  3. wow this is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hey kids!!!! Use Mangoes in place of the strawberries!!!!!

    Where did you purchase the flasks? Such a fun idea!

  6. I’m guessing 3:30pm is not an appropriate time to start imbibing (especially since my daughter is napping at the moment), but I am salivating regardless. I love summer. And games. I might have to host a game night…

  7. This is really interesting, You are a very skilled blogger.
    I’ve joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your great post. Also, I have shared your web site in my social networks!

  8. Was this flavourful enough on its own or did you mix it with juice or anything?

  9. hello Mrs. loveumadly! im unsure how i came across your blog but i absolutely love it<3 though i was wondering where you bought those cute little flasks and i would gladly love to hear back from you.

  10. We used to fill a wine bottle with grapes and it was so delicious, especially the grapes after! I wonder if they would work well…

  11. Howdy! This article could not be written much better! Looking
    at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He always kept talking about this.

    I most certainly will forward this information to him. Fairly certain he will have a
    great read. Thank you for sharing!

  12. WOW i want to test this alcohol! Great post!
