💭 What is Strawberry Vodka?
This strawberry vodka is a plain vodka that has been infused with the flavor and beautiful color of strawberries!
A number of commercially available brands of strawberry vodka exist, including, but not limited to: Smirnoff, Pinnacle, Effen, Beattie's, Svedka, etc.
Those store bought brands, while convenient, don't have the fresh flavor and gorgeous red color that this homemade strawberry vodka does!
This recipe only needs TWO ingredients. They're pictured and discussed below. See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
- Strawberries: You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries, according to your preference.
- Vodka: When it comes to infusing vodka, you want to use something that is of good quality (like Smirnoff), but not necessarily something of very good quality (like Belvedere). Basically, you want to use something that you enjoy drinking, but you don't need to break the bank on something top shelf.
🔀 Substitutions or Variations

Strawberry Vodka is a lovely addition to a number of different cocktails. You could totally use it in my Strawberry Lemonade Vodka Cocktail to really amp up the strawberry flavor. Maybe use it in a Strawberry Vodka Martini?
❓ Recipe FAQs
Yes! You can use frozen strawberries, if you prefer.
Allow the strawberries to infuse into the vodka for 3-5 days. You can taste it a bit along the way and stop whenever you're happy with it.
It should keep well for about 6 weeks when stored at room temperature, and for about 3 months when stored in the fridge.
Use something that's good, but not too good. You don't need to use top shelf vodka, but you also don't want to use something that you wouldn't want to drink on its own.
