Homemade Strawberry Liqueur Recipe

Jun 19, 2017 | Cocktails

INGREDIENTS:

for 1 liter of liqueur

500 gr of strawberries
500 ml of alcohol (Vodka)
400 grams of sugar
300 ml of water
Note: I suggest you buy 1 kg. of strawberries because you are going to cut the stems off and because sometimes there are some bad strawberries in the package.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Wash and dry the strawberries. Remove the stems and cut off the top of the strawberries. The flesh close to the stem is not as sweet as the rest of the strawberry. If there is any white flesh on the strawberries, cut them off. Dice all the strawberries.

Place diced strawberries into a clean jar. Add the vodka, stir well and close the jar. Store the jar in a cool place for at least one month. Stir the strawberries with a metal or wood spoon at least once a week.

After at least a month of aging, the liqueur is ready to be strained. Get an empty jar or a container and strain the liqueur with a fine mesh strainer.

Note: The liqueur is not going to be completely filtered. There is going to be some residue which it’s OK.

Boil 300 milliliters of water. Add the sugar and stir constantly until all the sugar dissolves completely. Let the simple syrup cool down and add it to the strawberry liqueur.

Note: Some strawberries are sweet and some are not as sweet. If the strawberries that you are using are really sweet, you could make the simple syrup with 250 grams of sugar instead of 400 grams of sugar.

Bottling and Serving

This strawberry liqueur recipe yields about 1 liters of liqueur. The liqueur could be stored in an empty 1 liter bottle or two 500 ml bottles. Let it rest at least a couple of days before using.
Note: Make sure you shake the strawberry liqueur well before serving.
