Strawberry Liqueur


Strawberry season is here. I was reading 'Blue Lotus' blog and she did this strawberry liqueur. Since strawberries is so cheap now I thought maybe I should give this liqueur a try. Is really simple and all you need is a glass jar or bottle, strawberries, rock sugar, white liquor and some slice lemon. I not too sure what this white liquor is so Carlos suggest that I used either vodka or rum.



What you need :

2 packets of Strawberries - wash and drain well.
2 lemons - remove the skin, seeds and the white part and slice thinly
1 packet of rock sugar
1 bottle of vodka or rum

Arrange strawberries, lemon slices and rock sugar in the jar. Pour liquor into the jar/bottle enough to cover the fruits and sugar and seal well. Leave jar /bottle in a cool dark place for two months or liqueur turns nice and red. Strain to remove fruits and transfer to clean bottles.

Note : You can use any kind of sugar and the amount is up to you. It all depend on the sweetness you want.

I love strawberries but only in their raw state, with cream at most. How did this taste like??
