Basic recipe for shrub
150 g strawberries
300 ml balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar
Dansukker Cane Sugar Granulated

Strawberry shrub
3 tbsp shrub
200 ml carbonated water
2-3 fresh strawberries
1 lime
40 ml gin (optional)


Rinse and chop the strawberries. Place them in a thoroughly-cleaned glass jar with a tight lid.
Heat the vinegar in a pan but do not let it boil. Pour over the strawberries and seal well. Place in the refrigerator and leave to stand for at least 2 days.
Pour the vinegar through a fine-meshed sieve a couple of times until the liquid is completely clear. Boil the vinegar together with the sugar. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved and pour into a thoroughly-cleaned glass jar. Seal. Store in the refrigerator.

Strawberry shrub
Pour the shrub into a jar and fill with carbonated water.
Rinse and add the strawberries. Add the gin and lime slices.

Make the shrub at least a few days before serving. The flavour will become more intense the longer it stands.
