DIY Strawberry Liqueur

You can splash a little strawberry liqueur in sparkling wine or club soda for a quick refresher, use it to sweeten up a seasonal sangria, or sub it in for other liqueurs like triple sec in classic cocktails.

Note: If you're using frozen strawberries, defrost them before use.
If you can't find (or don't like) tarragon, other fresh herbs like basil or mint are a good substitute. Be sure to strain thoroughly, as little floating bits of strawberry will give your liqueur an off flavor after just a week or two.
