I know it’s been a week, a whole seven days, since I’ve last seen you. Are you ok? I dunno if I am… I’ve been busy doing things, and stuff, and more things. But I’m back, and with good timing! I’ve had something hangin’ out in my closet for a couple of weeks now. Don’t be afraid, it’s kinda neat, different, and tasty. Wanna see?
I’ve been infusing vodka with strawberries and rosemary. Not having many strawberries to start with, but I figured these three giant ones would do the trick. Who wants a martini??
Starting off, I’m in the “vodka martinis aren’t really martinis” club. Which is why this recipe isn’t a true vodka martini… and I like to break the rules. Also, note that the vodka isn’t sweetened with anything; it’s infused with the strawberry and rosemary essence, but has not picked up any of the sugars from the berries themselves. If you’d like things to be on the sweet side, feel free to whip up some simple syrup and add it in!
…Now let’s make some drinks!
