Next up: strawberry vodka

Before delving into this week's experiment, we'd like to give a warm welcome to all new readers visiting us from The Ferrett's review! We've added a few new links to our sidebar on the right, which will provide some more information on who we are, what we've done, and how we do it. We'll keep them updated with new experiments and cocktail recipes we develop them.

This week, we are creating a strawberry vodka. This experiment involves about 12 thinly sliced strawberries (sans the leafy crowns). We're not sure how long it will take to infuse, as our research has provided a variety of opinions. We will figure it out as we go along, tasting it periodically until it is ready.

Wayland slices strawberries for the infusion:

We weren't sure how much of these slices would fit in the jar with the vodka, so we put in half, added the vodka, and then added as many more strawberries as would fit. As it turned out, everything we sliced fit in.

We'll keep you posted on this infusion as it progresses.

A couple weeks ago, we mentioned that the Vodka God was experimenting with his own infusions; garlic and bacon, to be specific. After a bit of prodding on our part, he has posted the unfortunate results of the bacon vodka experiment; you can read his review here.
