Recently while enjoying my strawberry and lemon infused water I started wondering how great the fruit would taste in something a lot stronger. I usually buy the flavored stuff to add a little umph to my favorite mixers but decided to make my own with what I had available.
I quartered some strawberries and covered them with vodka. Then, I let them sit on the counter in a sealed mason jar for a few hours. For a stronger berry flavor you can let the good stuff sit for upto 5 days. (Just remember to shake the mixture daily)
When it was cocktail creating time, I simply took out my favorite drink glasses and began mixing away.
My own version of strawberry lemonade called for my “homemade” strawberry infused vodka poured over cubed ice, topped with lemon/lime seltzer, a splash of lemonade and some fresh squeezed lemon juice. Garnish your glass with a plump strawberry for a little fun. It was delicious, fresh, and light.
The only problem is that somehow the drink kept disappearing. ????LOVE IT!2+
