My first problem was that the liquor store did not have strawberry liqueur, well they did but I didn't want to pay $45.00 a bottle for top shelf stuff unless I knew I would like it. I am sure I would...LOL So they suggest the Strawberry Pucker.
Second problem was strawberry nectar. I know I have seen all sorts of different nectars at Publix. Well they only had pear, mango and apricot. So I quickly searched on my phone for a strawberry nectar recipe. All it is is fresh strawberries, apple juice and a bit of water.
The first one I mixed actually was so bland I tossed it. In the strawberry nectar, I added sugar until it sweetened up and added less strawberry pucker. The second drink was way better.
I did a little peaking around online and found strawberry nectar on netgrocer.com and I may try and look for it at Sweetbay. I also found that BOLS does make Strawberry Liqueur. I will try another liquor store for it.
