Hey we do have Spirits in our title and it is Wednesday, so let’s get to it.
- 1 pint strawberries
- 1 package gelatin
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup vanilla vodka
- 2 ounces Chambord
Wash and hull strawberries. Use paring knife to cut a small hole in the top of each berry, about a teaspoon for bigger berries, half that for smaller. Save the cut-out portions. Position the berries cavity side up in a cookie sheet. Set aside. Blend reserved berry chunks with Chambord. Add vodka and set aside. Strain to remove berry bits, if needed. In a small saucepan, combine gelatin and water, stir until just combined. Add sugar and then add the gelatin mix to the vodka mix and stir to combine. Fill each strawberry with the booze mixture. Place any reserve mix into ramekins. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours, until set.
Aren’t berries and booze a great combo? That’s rhetorical. Here are some of our other favorite pairings.
