500ml Vodka

200g White sugar

250ml water

Cream Liqueur*

200g white sugar

Method

Strawberry Liqueur

Place the sliced strawberries in a large jar with an airtight lid and cover with the vodka, give it a good shake to combine.   

Place in a cool dark cupboard for 20 days, give the jar a shake every couple of days.  Taste your infusion a couple of times. you may be happy with a more subtle flavour and want to strain it ahead of the recommended time.

For the simple Liqueur -  After the 20 days has passed make the syrup,  in a medium sized saucepan add the sugar and water and over a medium heat bring to a boil, stirring often, lower heat and cook for 8-10 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to completely cool.

Strain the alcohol from the strawberries using a fine mesh sieve or a coffee filter into a clean jar or bottle with a tight fitting lid. 

Add the cooled syrup and stir to combine. 

Close the jar and refrigerate for 2 days before serving. 

Homemade Strawberry Liqueur Recipes

To make the creamy liqueur - In a medium sized saucepan add the sugar, milk and cream, stir to combine, bring the mixture to a boil, lower heat and simmer 1 minute,  remove from heat and allow to cool.

Strain the alcohol from the strawberries into a clean jar or bottle with a tight fitting lid. Add the cooled cream mixture and stir to combine. Close the jar and refrigerate for 1 day before serving. 

Remember to keep stored in the fridge.

Strawberry Cream Liqueur Version 2 - Extra simple

500g strawberries, sliced 

1tsp milk

2tsp vanilla extract

250ml whiskey

125ml vodka

60ml condensed milk

125ml milk

Method

Place the sliced strawberries in a  blender with 1 teaspoon milk and purée. Add vanilla, whiskey, and vodka. Blend well.

Add the rest of the milks and blend at low speed for 1 minute. Strawberry particles will appear in the liqueur.

Tip - Neutral flavoured vodka works especially well as the base for an infusion, but feel free to experiment with other spirits, such as gin, rum, or tequila. Generally, the lighter coloured, least flavoured versions provide the most dependable results.

Variations - If you fancy trying the above with peaches or Nisperos use brandy instead of whiskey.
