Infused Liquors, Strawberry Gin

Pin It

You can infuse liquor with pretty much anything you like. The nice thing about it is you can be sure it's a natural flavoring and not an artificial one.

This is great sipped on over ice or you can use it to make a wonderful cocktail!

Strawberry Infused Gin
1 liter or so of good gin
1 lb of chopped strawberries
1/4c cane sugar (my berries were not very sweet. you may want to lessen the amount with sweeter berries)

Put all ingredients into a glass container and mix it up.
Cover and let sit for 4-6 weeks. Vacillate the jar at least one per week while it's infusing.
After 4-6 weeks, strain through cheese cloth, kitchen towel or nut bag. Transfer to a clean, dry glass container and store covered. The alcohol keeps for about a year. After that, it starts to loose it's infused flavors.

Be sure your cover is air tight.

After about 2 months, the color and flavor has deepened.

The berries lose all their color to the gin.

I used some repurposed bottles to package this and the Pear Spice Vodka in for gifts.

The tops of my bottles had some writing stamped on them, so I used these perfectly sized stickers to cover that.
Turned out nicely and I didn't have to buy anything for packaging.

  1. Gin makes me all emotional. Strawberry vodka might be better for me+ my mental state! :)

  2. Strawberry vodka or maybe even a light rum would be good :)
    Tequila does that to me. A margarita is fine, but anymore than that and I'll wind up crying by the end of the night.
