How long does Homemade Strawberry Infused Vodka take?
After about 8 hours your strawberries have released all their yummy sweetness. You are welcome for this mixture to sit overnight or even for a few days. It will just get more intense in flavor. The vodka now has taken on a delightful rosy strawberry color.
How do you store strawberry vodka?
I store my strawberry vodka in a closed mason jar and keep it in a cool dark place until it is cocktail time!
Check out the beautiful strawberries. They have been taking a bath in vodka for a few hours and they are quite…. drunk. Try one. Yup. Drunk Strawberries.
** I keep these strawberries in a container in the refrigerator and add them as an ingredient in certain cocktails.
No need to heat this mixture. Just keep this strawberry vodka sealed and in a cool dry place.
Should you strain the strawberries out of the strawberry vodka?
I strain the berries from the vodka using just a mesh strainer. The seeds and bits of strawberry will still be in the vodka with this method. If you prefer a clean liquid, you are going to want strain through several layers of fine cheesecloth. Or use a coffee filter.
I prefer the seeds and strawberry bits. It reminds me that this is vodka was made with REAL strawberries.
Store in an airtight container and enjoy!
