Cocktails: What is a dinner party with a signature drink? Here is my recipe for the Strawberry Smash:


One bottle (750ml) vodka

Two pints of fresh strawberries

Rinse and quarter the strawberries and place them in a glass carafe with lid. Add vodka, cover, and agitate the jar.

Refrigerate for 7 days, swirling around once a day to promote extraction.  After 3 to 7 days, strain with a coffee filter. Store in a beautiful glass bottle with a cork or top.  Enjoy!
