Made From Your Garden
Strawberry Liqueur — A Taste of Summer
by Debbie Teashon
Strawberries fresh from your garden, coupled with organic sugar cane and vodka, makes this liqueur divine. With a taste that says fresh-from-the-garden, the liqueur makes a wonderful gift, especially if you bottle it into a delightful, clear glass container.
Organic cane sugar isn't bleached as regular sugar is, and when dissolved in water it has a light amber hue. Mixed with the infusion the hue is a translucent warm red. Bleached sugar will give the liqueur a pinkish hue.
- 1-cup hot water
- 1-cup organic cane sugar
Bring water to a boil, and then stir in sugar until dissolved. Cool to room temperature before adding to the infused spirit.

The strawberries lose their color — the liqueur swipes it!
Remember! Always drink responsibly!
