Strawberry Blonde


  • 1 ounce strawberry shrub see instructions below
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 2 dashes Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters
  • 4 oz Gosling’s Ginger beer
  • 1 lemon wedge for garnish

Recipe Notes

*To make strawberry shrub: slice 1 quart strawberries and combine with 2 cups sugar. Stir, then allow to sit at room temperature for about four hours or until the berries have released most of their juice. Strain, reserving juice and berries separately. For every cup of strawberry juice, add 1/8 ounce ginger juice (either make your own or look for bottled brands like Ginger People) and 1/4 ounce red wine vinegar. Refrigerate for up to one month. Reserved berries can be used to top ice cream or oatmeal, or eat them straight from the bowl.
