This is being posted for the great strawberry recipe swap and for Rita who I know will perk up her ears when she sees it! I havent tried it and am not much of a liqueur person but the recipe says that it is a vivid red cordial with the fresh taste of strawberries.

Absolutely heavenly. Each summer after I pick strawberries I make a batch of this strawberry liqueur. Every day while it's steeping my husband and best friend ask if it's done yet. Then I only dose it out in small portions to make it last longer. Thanks for posting this, it has really added to my summer recipes.
