The quality of vodka you use here is important. As when cooking with wine, only use a vodka you enjoy drinking. For the best results use a vodka with a proof of 80 or above, as the aromatics of the fruit are drawn out due to the alcohol, so the higher the proof the more flavoured and aromatic the resulting vodka will be. However with a higher proof the the taste of the vodka can be more harsh, so find a happy medium. I like a smooth vodka, so I went with Grey Goose, which has a proof of 80, but you can use whatever you like.

You can also add your own personal touches to the vodka by adding your own flavourings. Why not try adding a vanilla bean for strawberry vanilla vodka. You could also try using different fruits such as cherries, blueberries and raspberries. You could also try using peaches, plums or slices of orange, lemon or lime. Or, for something a little more festive, why not check out the Plum Pudding Vodka I made last year.

Serve the Strawberry Vodka chilled over ice, or in your favourite cocktail.

Can you use regular sugar instead if you don’t have superfine sugar.

This sounds delicious. When you say to seal the bottles,are you referring to canning technique?

I am planning on making this strawberry vodka as gifts. Can you leave the strawberries in the jars

Yum! I can imagine doing this with the cherries that we’re seeing coming through right now too! 😀

This would make a great gift – it’s so pretty and Christmasy.

Oh girl, this is so up my alley it’s not even funny. We always have good quality vodka around, and are picking strawberry’s from Jase’s parents’ farm… so I think we have a winning combination!!!

Many, many years ago, when I was young, I made a flavoured vodka after reading an article in a cool magazine. Would you believe I used Mars bars?! Your strawberry vodka is much more sophisticated! Just the thing for a summer Christmas.
