Bob’s Bitters Vanilla

Strawberry Fields

Made at The Ivy


  • 25ml strawberry shrub (see below for recipe/method)
  • 120ml Champagne
  • Bob’s Vanilla Bitters


Pour all of the ingredients into a champagne flute and garnish with an upturned mint head.

For the strawberry shrub:


  • 2 x cups strawberries (halved)
1 x cup Aspalls cider vinegar
25ml Balsamic vinegar
  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 1 x cup calvados


Place the strawberries into a jar. Add half a cup of sugar and gently muddle. Leave in the fridge over night. Add the vinegar and leave for a further 2 days. Then strain through a muslin cloth and add the calvados and extra sugar.

Bottle and refrigerate. This will last for months as the vinegar, sugar and alcohol provide excellent preservation.
