Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 1-quart good-quality vodka
  • 2 cups sugar

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine strawberries and vodka in a large, sterilized glass container. Seal and set in a dark, cool place for 1 week.

  2. After 1 week, pour through a sieve, reserving strawberries, and transfer strawberry-infused vodka into a clean, sterilized glass container and seal. Add sugar to strawberries, mix well and transfer to a separate clean, sterilized glass container and seal. Place both containers in a dark, cool place for 1 month.

  3. After 1 month, thoroughly combine strawberry mixture with vodka, strain and pour into a clean, sterilized glass container. Seal and allow to age in a cool, dark place for several months. Strawberries may be discarded or served over ice cream or pound cake the same day.
