Strawberry Gin: A Great Personal Christmas Gift

Strawberry Gin: A Great Personal Christmas Gift.

Strawberry Gin anyone!?

 Makes a great gift.

Strawberry Gin: A Great Personal Christmas Gift

Unlike sloe gin, this strawberry version only needs 3 days to stand for the flavours to develop.

Strain and decant into a pretty bottle or several smaller ones, then add a handmade label and ribbons for a personalised Christmas gift.

Delicious served with ice and chilled tonic.

Strawberry Gin: A Great Personal Christmas Gift

Makes 1 large bottle
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Standing time: 3 days

You Will Need:

450g (1 lb) strawberries

150g (5oz) caster sugar

700ml bottle gin

Method:

1.) Very roughly crush the strawberries with a fork or potato masher then spoon into a wide necked glass bottle or le parfait style storage jar. 

2.)  Add the sugar then the gin, seal and give a gentle shake to mix.

3.) Leave the jar at room temperature for 3 days, giving the container a gentle shake twice each day to make sure that the sugar dissolves.

4.) Strain the mixture then decant into a clean, dry serving bottle. 

 5.) Seal well with a screw topped lid, cork or clip top. 

6.) Decorate the bottle with a handwritten label tied on with ribbon or raffia.
