How to prepare the liqueur?
It won’t take you long to prepare your wild strawberry liqueur following Delices and Gourmandises recipe but maceration period is a bit longer. However, you won’t regret being patient. Wash carefully yet quickly the strawberries under a under a drizzle of cold water then stalks them. Let them dry on paper towel before putting them in a jar. Pour the brandy or rum over the strawberries and tightly close the jar. Let the fruits macerate in alcohol for a whole month.
Once this is done, filter the juice from the preparation. Make a syrup with the sugar and water. Let cool before adding it to the alcoholic juice. If you used cane sugar syrup, add it slowly to get a pretty sweet mixture to your liking.
