Move past your high school days and step up to a very tasty adult concoction by learning how to make alcoholic strawberries. Alcohol-soaked strawberries are refreshing and festive-looking at any dinner, summer gathering or when you're just hanging around the house. Simple to make and deceptively tasty, alcoholic strawberries are pure fruity deliciousness. Just remember, when eating alcoholic strawberries you are actually consuming alcohol.
To make alcoholic strawberries, you will need:
- A large bowl with an airtight cover
- A fork
- A knife
Wash the strawberries under cool running water. Dry the strawberries thoroughly with a paper towel, being careful not to bruise the fruit.
- Hull the strawberries with the knife. Try to cut off as little of the red meat of the strawberry as possible while hulling; you don't want to waste any of the fruit.
Fill the bowl with the vodka. Leave enough room for the strawberries to be able to fit into the bowl without overflow.
- Add the strawberries to the vodka in the bowl. The strawberries need to be fully submerged in the alcohol to become alcoholic strawberries.
Cover the strawberries. Make sure the seal on the bowl is tight as you will be turning the bowl upside down periodically to ensure that all of the strawberries are soaking up the alcohol.
- Place the strawberries in the fridge. The amount of time the strawberries get to soak up the vodka will affect the alcoholic content of the strawberries. One hour at minimum is necessary, but you can soak the strawberries for as long as 24 hours without affecting the texture of the alcoholic strawberries.
