How to make homemade strawberry banana vodka

Let’s make this refreshing cocktail.

Ingredients

Time Needed : 5 days

Here is a simple step by step guide for making strawberry banana infused vodka at home.

  1. Get your fruits ready

    Alright, so first things first, grab those fresh strawberries and bananas. Wash ’em up real nice. Then, slice the strawberries into little pieces and do the same with the bananas. Not too thin, not too thick, just nice bite-sized slices.

  2. Layer your fruits

    Now, take a good ol’ mason jar or any airtight container you’ve got lying around. Start layering those strawberry and banana slices inside the jar. You can alternate them if you’re feeling artsy or just toss ’em in however you like. No judgment here!

  3. Add vodka

    Alright, grab that trusty bottle of vodka. Pour it over the fruits in the jar until they’re completely submerged. Make sure those fruits take a nice, boozy bath – that’s where the magic happens!

  4. Add your optional sweetener

    If you’ve got a sweet tooth, now’s the time. Sprinkle in some sugar over the fruits before pouring the vodka. It’s optional, but it can give your infusion a little extra sweetness.

  5. Seal the jar and store

    Seal up that jar tight, like you’re keeping a treasure safe! Now, find a cozy spot in your place – maybe in a cupboard or a cool, dark corner. Let it sit there for about 3 to 5 days. Oh, and don’t forget to give the jar a gentle shake once a day, just to mix things up!

  6. Strain and sip away

    After those days of waiting, grab a fine-mesh sieve or some cheesecloth. Strain that vodka mixture to get rid of all those fruit bits. Pour it into a clean bottle, and voilà! Your very own Strawberry Banana Vodka is ready to be sipped and enjoyed. Chilled over ice or mixed into your favorite cocktails – it’s your call!
    Cheers to your homemade fruity delight! 🍓🍌
