Strawberry gin

Unlike sloe gin, this strawberry version only needs 3 days to stand for the flavours to develop.  Strain and decant into a pretty bottle or several smaller ones, then add a handmade label and ribbons for a personalised gift.  Delicious served with ice and chilled tonic. 

Serves: 1 bottle


  • 450 g Strawberries , (1lb)
  • 150 g Caster sugar
  • 700ml g Bottle gin


1. Very roughly crush the strawberries with a fork or potato masher then spoon into a wide necked glass bottle or le parfait style storage jar.  Add the sugar then the gin, seal and give a gentle shake to mix.

2. Leave the jar at room temperature for 3 days, giving the container a gentle shake twice each day to make sure that the sugar dissolves.

3. Strain the mixture then decant into a clean, dry serving bottle.  Seal well with a screw topped lid, cork or clip top.  Decorate the bottle with a handwritten label tied on with ribbon or raffia. 

4. Serve in glasses with ice and tonic or add a splash to chilled sparkling white wine with a halved strawberry for a quick cocktail.
