When you soak the strawberries & gin/vodka, do you refrigerate it, leave it on the bench or in a dark cupboard?

JD I just left mine on the bench, I covered the bowl with a shower cap. The cheap ones from the $2.00 shop. Lol
I had been meaning to post to say that the liqueur is nice with ice, but I have been enjoying it with lemonade. I must make some more.

I've made a few batches of this recipe.  The first was a single batch as per the recipe followed by the conserve.

The second batch I made strawberry fruity dream from the EDC instead of conserve.  Because of the alcohol, the fruity dream leftovers are easy to remove from the freezer container but it is a little strong (certainly no good for children) so perhaps half fresh/half soak strawberries would work better.

My last lot made was a double batch (by now you can probably tell that I love the strawberry liqueur :-))) and once again froze the strawberries after they had done their job.  I've now used them in this recipe I'd made before from Chookie (it's in topic 6628.0).  I doubled the recipe and ended up with a 1.5 litre container full to the brim with some leftover that wouldn't fit into the ice-cream maker. You would think it would be quite scoopable with all those vodka soaked strawberries but it still is quite a firm ice-cream.  I serve with a sprinkle of Strawberry liqueur.

Magic Strawberry Icecream
1 1/2 cups of hulled strawberries. (I used half vodka infused strawberries and 1/2 fresh)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
30g white chocolate chips
1 dessertspoon of vodka (I used the Strawberry liqueur)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract pinch of salt
1  1/4 cups of whipping cream

Whip cream to soft peaks,  set aside.   No need to wash out bowl
Zap strawberries to a pulp.  Should give  3/4 of cup,  set aside .  No need to wash bowl
Add con. milk,chocolate chips, vanilla and vodka to bowl.with salt.  Mix and heat until chocolate melts.
Cool for 10 mins and fold in Strawberry mash and 1/3 of the cream.
Pour over remaining cream in bowl.  Fold in by hand to combine.
Freeze in air tight container until firm.  Minimum of 6 hours.  (Churned for 40 mins in Ice-cream maker then placed in the freezer to firm up)
If not eating immediately,  place glad wrap on surface of ice cream.

Clever Judy. I love the jam this makes and I just tried the strawberry gin, even though it is only 1 pm. I love it very much. Such a rich beautiful flavour. I won't be putting it on icecream at all, just down the hatch. I love it even more than my Mandarincello

I tried this again yesterday, OMG it has improved so much. I could almost sit down and drink a glass full but I would be under the table. I will be buying duty free gin next trip OS.

Do you mix the strawberry gin with anything cookie, or do you drink it straight?

My friend made the liqueur as a gift, when bottling added some of the strawberries.

I bought a heap of strawberries on the weekend and have been thinking seriously about making some more of this. Jeninwa you have set me on the way to more wickedness. :D :D
