Making Strawberry Liqueur

Having an abundance of strawberries I started to research what else I could make from them and came up with Strawberry Liqueur.

The first thing we did was purchase a bottle of vodka.  Depending on the size of your bottle you can scale up or down the other ingredients.


750g very ripe strawberries

750g caster sugar

270 ml water

700 ml vodka

Preparation method:

First hull and cut up the strawberries, then lightly rinse.


Next transfer to a large glass jar, I used a demi john.


Add the sugar:


Next add the vodka and the water:


Then shake it all up and seal the jar.


Store out of sunlight in the cool for 1 month, gently shaking the jar once or twice a day.

After one month strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl.  Then strain again to rid the mixture of any remaining strawberry seeds, through a coffee filter.  Transfer the liquid to glass bottles.  Can be used immediately or improves over time.

So now I have a month to wait.  Until then I shall look up what else I can make………..

If you want to sample our strawberries for breakfast, we still have some vacancies in July and August in the B&B.

    I’ve seen strawberry vodka for sale in supermarkets here in Italy and been a little bit tempted but I bet yours will be much, much nicer.
