Did you know the strawberry isn’t a berry? It’s actually a delicious vehicle of alcohol delivery just waiting to be mixed with booze. Infusing vodka is one of the great ways of smartening up your drinks cabinet without spending a fortune on obscure hipster tipples that you barely ever use. Decent vodka can be bought reasonably cheap and infusing even the more dubious versions can help to make it a little more smooth. It’s also one of the better spirits to flavour as a rule thanks to it’s subtle signature taste.
This month’s Tuesday Boozedays are going to be based around DIY strawberry infused vodka, starting with one coming this afternoon. I made the vodka pictured above yesterday and already it’s tasting deliciously strawberryish and blushing to a nice pink. I’m going to keep the fruit in for another few days to fully infuse but it’s ready to use within 12 hours so definitely one for the impatient boozers among us. And it takes no more than five minutes from start to finish. Let the strawberry cocktails commence.
