Bob’s Bitters Vanilla

Strawberry Fields


Made at The Ivy

Ingredients

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

Method

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


For the strawberry shrub:

Ingredients

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

Method

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.
