This is gorgeous. Mixes nice half and half with tonic. Going to try it with raspberries next.

Why on earth would you use a bottle of perfectly good Brockmans (which already has a massive hit of berry flavours) on this recipe - if you're infusing gin with strawberries, wouldn't a less flavoursome gin be better to try and transform into something a little more special?

Thanks for your question. The two suggested gins complement this recipe really well but you can use any type of gin.

I have been making country wines and liqueurs for many years. I am looking to reducing the amount of sugar used in the liqueurs. I am aware of the preserative nature of sugar but what about using less sugar and replacing it by sweeteners. this is a serious question. In my 82nd year now and being a type 2 diabetic for the last 18 years i now find my problem has become one where my weekly 100 miles plus on my bike has disappeared in the last two years and I am smitten with increaing arthitic pain. so has anyone experience in using sweetener in "liqueurs"

Thanks for your question. Sweeteners will not have the same preserving properties and we have not tested these as an alternative. Unfortunately we are unable to give individual dietary advice. We do however have a number of features about sugar which may be of interest. https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/all-you-need-know-about-sugar

This looks lovely, may I ask how long it will last once made? Must it be stored in the fridge too? Thanks very much!

Thanks for your question. You can store this in a cool, dark place for up to a year. Enjoy!
