Strawberry Bourbon - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

I've been in the mood for some seasonal cocktails lately, and was inspired to make my own strawberry-infused bourbon. The straberries really sweeten the bourbon, and it's just so pretty.

Ingredients

1 cup organic strawberries

Bourbon

Wash your strawberries, chop the tops off before slicing them in half.

Fill a mason jar with your sliced strawberries.

Pour your bourbon into the jar over the strawberries.

Screw the top on your jar, and store in a cool, dark place for 3-4 days. I stored it for 3 in our apartment's old cold storage cabinet - I believe it's called an "ice box."

After 3 days, take the infused bourbon out.

And strain the strawberries from the bourbon.

And there you have it! Store your bourbon in the refrigerator to preserve the flavor - and make yourself some delicious summer cocktails!

*A note about using organic strawberries. Conventionally grown strawberries contain some of the highest pesticide levels of all the fruits, and in my experience lack the depth of flavor I find in organic strawberries.
