    It's so easy to make your own liqueurs - and so easy to get sloshed on them when they taste this good!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    quart

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Clean berries without washing; set aside in tall half-gallon jar.
    2. 2
      Mix sugar with 1 cup water and stir over low heat until sugar dissolves.
    3. 3
      Increase heat; bring mixture to boil and set aside to cool.
    4. 4
      Mix cooled syrup with vodka and pour over strawberries.
    5. 5
      Cover tightly and store in a cool, dark place for 1 week.
    6. 6
      Pass liqueur through a fine mesh strainer (eat berries :-)).
    7. 7
      Strain again through coffee filter into a bottle.

      Note: The reason for the double-straining is to eliminate the tiny strawberry seeds that inevitably fall off the fruit into the liqueur. The fruit can be cut into smaller pieces if very large, or left whole.

      I have never made any cordial before and this was a fantastic introduction to a whole new world of delicious drinks. Since I was a novice, I decided to make half a batch. I wasn't sure if I should leave the berries whole or cut them up, so I did quarter them, hoping that was the right choice. After putting the berries and the syrup and vodka in my jug, there was still plenty of room left to accomodate more berries, so I added enough until they came to the top of the liquid. It was so hard to say goodbye to that beautiful little jug, putting it away for a week. Tasting day finally came, so I poured the bright red cordial through a strainer. I was not clear about why I should pass it through the strainer and then strain it once again through a coffee filter. My cordial was crystal clear and tasted heavenly! Perhaps I should have mashed up the berries into the liqueur, but I didn't, and I'm very happy with the results. I now have this precious little bottle of beautiful red, strawberry cordial that I will portion out to a very few lucky people. Then when it's gone...I'll make some more! You are right Evelyn...this is truly easy and delicious.

      This is delicious! I served it at a Christmas party and one person that doesn't even drink wants a bottle of this and another person that doesn't like strawberrys couldn't stay out of the bottle! I'm making more. It's my favorite liqueur I've made.
