I have decided to experiment with an all natural sweetener called Stevia that basically has zero carbs and is a good substitute for those who are diabetic.
1 bottle of vodka (750 ml)
1 lb strawberries
12 packets Stevia
Cut the strawberries into small pieces and place into a crock or tupperware container
Add the Stevia and stir the berries
Cover and let stand for 6 to 7 hours
Add the vodka
Cover tightly and leave for 3-4 months, shaking (shake every day for first 2 weeks then once a month)
Strain into another bottle or strain as you pour the latter will add the interest of having the fruit in the bottle as you pour
