Continue "strawberry " theme. Alcoholic drinks, I began to do last year, when he moved to his own family and "country" of life. Just last summer there were a lot of berries and I started "food preservation". Have tried many different recipes for berries, something like that, it doesn't (though he drank all)). This year I decided that strawberry liqueur will do! On the website, this is not found. Though this recipe and the "long", but the waiting time is worth it. Beautiful, fragrant, moderately sweet drink.
Ingredients for Strawberry liqueur
Step by step instruction of cooking Strawberry liqueur
Thoroughly wash 2 kg of strawberries, give water to drain.
Clean the berries from the stalks and put in 3 liters jar. Pour 1 liter of vodka.
The neck of the banks wrapped with gauze, and for 3-4 days to infuse (I - on the balcony in the shade).
Strawberry recline in a colander and allow to drain. In the end, the berries gave the juice and the tincture turned out a liter and a half.
Meanwhile, cook from Lira water and sugar syrup (original recipe found on the Internet, use 1 kg of sugar, but I thought it would be sweet, and I thrashed about 800 grams. If that is possible then to sweeten).
Bring syrup to a boil, laying him in the strawberries, cook for 10 minutes. Cool.
Strawberries are thrown back on a colander, allow to drain the syrup.
Combine the syrup with the liqueur and strain (I use cheesecloth in 4 layers). On the gauze remain strawberry "lint" and seeds.
Razdelyaet the strawberries into a puree.
This puree squeeze or like me, pass through cheesecloth, so again, came out all the juice (photos, of course, not very aesthetic, but it shows the process).
At the exit - a little more than 3 liters of liquor (second jar with the remnants of liquor was lost and got the shot)))
Leave to infuse for a week.
In a week it is possible to bottle and drink! It turns out fragrant, moderately sweet, light alcoholic drink. His feature - the longer it is, the tastier!
