Drunk Strawberries and Sober Vodka
After this morning....I really could use one of these (but it's still early and I do have my boundaries....really. I do...honest). I wish I hadn't tossed out the strawberries. You see....after soaking in vodka for 2 weeks, the strawberries were thoroughly drunk! And very...un-strawberrish in looks and taste.
I woke up early this morning and started writing. I had a hard time to begin with. My mind wasn't awake and my body didn't want to be. But I got through it. I wouldn't say "with flying colors" but I was satisfied. Plus I had to get ready for work.
3 hours later I discover that blogger is now publishing with invisible ink? The only things that posted were the labels and the title (which happened to be the last things I added). I tried to crack the code by applyinig lemon juice and heat....
I made sure I was wearing my glasses. I double checked to make sure the monitor was turned on. I even contimplated the "I must've been dreaming" theory.
I then started to whine about it (hey, it works for the kids sometimes, doesn't it?)
My efforts were fruitless.
But my vodka isn't
When I saw Bo's Raspberry Infused Vodka over at Bo's Bowl, I was instantly intrigued. He has a great blog with lots of great things...you really should check it out if you're not already following him.
The vodka infusion process was so simple. I think the hardest part is the wait. 2 weeks. But the results are fun and festive and summery.
Strawberry Infused Vodka
1 750 ml vodka
1 pints strawberres, washed and cored (or whatever it's called that you do when you remove the leaves
1 large jar (Bo said to use a glass jar. I didn't have one big enough so I used plastic)
