Strawberry Infused Bourbon

Strawberry Infused Bourbon

Servings 750 ml
Author Brandon Matzek

Ingredients

  • Ripe organic strawberries (I used just over a pound)
  • 750 ml good bourbon*

Instructions

  1. Wash, dry, hull and slice all strawberries. Place in a large, airtight jar then cover with bourbon. Seal the jar and let steep for 7 days in a cool, dark spot. Give the jar a good shake every two days.
  2. Strain the bourbon into a clean jar or bottle through a fine mesh basket strainer lined with a layer of cheesecloth.** Discard solids.

Recipe Notes

*No need to bust out your small-batch, ultra-aged, super-special bourbon for this recipe. Just make sure you don't use anything from the bottom shelf.

** You want to be certain that you strain out all of the solid materials from the bourbon. Any leftover particles will breakdown over time and have an adverse affect on the taste. You should strain out the bourbon with a fine-mesh basket strainer or a coffee filter. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 to 3 months.
