Serves 8-10:

2 Pints (1.25 Lbs. Or 575g) Strawberries, Organic Or Unsprayed
1 bottle (750 ml) Vodka
Lemonade*
1 to 2 oz Of Strawberry Vodka**

Casseroles, Boxcutters, Teaspoons, Jigger, Citrus Juicer, Strainer, Libra, Highball Glass, Cup, Jars.
In a Tumbler Alto full of ice, pour the lemonade, then infused Vodka and strawberries.
Garnish with a Lemon Slice and Strawberry.

*Lemonade:
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 5-6 lemons)
2-3 cups water
Stir the sugar and 1 cup water together in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Make sure the sugar dissolves completely. Let boil for a minute then remove from heat. Let the simple syrup cool. Combine the simple syrup with the lemon juice and add 2 cups of water. Add more water to taste. Makes about a quart (depending on how strong you want your lemonade).

**Strawberry Vodka:
Wash, hull, and cut the strawberries into halves if they are small, quarters if they are large. Put the cut strawberries into a glass Jar with a capacity large enough to hold the strawberries and the vodka. Pour the vodka into the jar. Tighten the lid on the jar and give it a good shake. Store the jar in a dark, cool place for 3-7 days (I went with 7 days). Give it a swish once a day. When the vodka is ready, strain the strawberry solids out with a fine mesh sieve, cheesecloth, or if you have a lot of time on your hands and want a super clear liquid - a coffee filter (this method totally doesn't work for the impatient). Store in the refrigerator or the freezer for several weeks. Makes a quart.
