Soiree Amaretto & strawberry shrub

6
15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 100g of strawberries, quartered
  • 100g of granulated sugar
  • 100ml of cider vinegar
  • 1 lemon
  • 100ml of Amaretto, Soiree
  • ice
  • sparkling water
  • strawberries, to serve
  • strawberries, or pineberries, to serve

Method

1
To create the shrub simply tip the strawberry pieces into a large bowl and sprinkle over the sugar. Leave to stand for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. The sugar will start to draw the juice from the strawberries and the sugar will start to dissolve into it
2
After an hour, press the strawberry and sugar mixture through a metal sieve into a large jug or bowl. Press firmly with the back of a spoon to get as much juice out through the sieve as possible. Add the vinegar to the resulting liquid and stir well (discard the strawberry pulp in the sieve)
3
Pour the shrub into a cocktail shaker, squeeze in the juice of a lemon, add the Soiree Amaretto and a hand full of ice
4
Shake well, until the outside of the cocktail shaker feels cold then strain into 6 ice filled martini glasses or tumblers. Add sparkling water to taste and serve with fresh strawberries and pineberries
