Ingredients
 

  • 400 g strawberries
  • 5 lavender or 2 tbsp dried lavender
  • 750 ml Gin
  • 175 g caster sugar

Instructions
 

  • Wipe over the strawberries and hull them by removing leaves and stalks. Cut them in half and drop into a wide mouthed jar, Kilners work really well for this.
  • Add the lavender heads and don't be tempted to overdo it as lavender has a strong flavour and can get too medicinal if you use too much.
  • Pour in the gin (normal supermarket stuff is what you want here, not to expensive stuff)
  • Add the sugar, seal jar and give it a good shake.
  • Put in a cupboard and shake every day for a week to get the sugar to dissolve completely.
  • After a week the strawberries will have lost their colour and the liquid will be a gorgeous pink colour.
  • Strain the liquid through 2 layers of kitchen paper in a sieve and decant into a pretty bottle.
  • Serve ice cold as a shot or with ice and tonic water, fizz or lemonade.

Notes

use fresh or frozen strawberries for this homemade liqueur
Serve with ice on its own or with a mixer or as part of a cocktail too
