Bloody Berry


This was a unique drink because it wasn't just mixing different liquids together, it actually used fresh strawberries in the drink. This reminded me a lot of a Strawberry Julius, it had the same flavor and consistency. This recipe was actually really tasty.

This recipe is from Vegetarian Times

Ingredients:
-4 cups hulled, chopped strawberries
-¼ cup lime juice
-1 cup sugar
-½ cup peeled and coarsely chopped fresh ginger
-hot sauce
-vodka if you want to make it an alcoholic drink

Cut and hull the strawberries. It took us almost 2 containers of
strawberries to get enough. 
Blend the strawberries with the lime juice.
Meanwhile, heat the sugar, water, ginger, and hot sauce until the sugar is dissolved.
Stir the 2 mixtures together.

This was the hard part for us, strain the liquid to get all the seeds out. Ours was pretty thick it took a really long time to get it all strained through a fine mesh strainer.


Pour the mixture over ice.

Stir in some vodka.
This drink was really good on its own, and also good with the vodka, and I couldn't taste the alcohol in it all. I'm not sure I would make it again though just because it was really time consuming, but Alecia's mom said that the strained we were using was too fine, you want a strainer that can trap the strawberry seeds, while letting liquid through. Since we were using a super fine mesh strainer we had a lot of trouble.
