Cover the jar and store in a cool dark place. Shake the jar once a day. After 3 days the vodka should be ready. The strawberries will look white in color and the vodka will be pink/red in color.
You can strain your vodka and throw out the berries if desired. I usually just keep them in the jar and do not strain.
