A tangy and sweet syrup to add to soda water for the perfect summer mocktail or cocktail!
3 cups chopped strawberries
1/2 cup dried hibiscus
1 cup raw honey
1/4 cup– 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
Add the strawberries, hibiscus and honey to a clean mason jar. Mash and muddle it with a muddle or fork. Put the lid on and let it sit in the fridge for 3-4 days shaking it every day to make sure all of the fruit/herbs get covered in honey.
After the mixture has sit pour it in a blender or food processor to pulse a few times. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh sieve pushing on it to get all of the liquid out. Add the apple cider vinegar to the syrup 1/4 cup at first, adding more to your desired taste buds. The apple cider vinegar will mellow out after a day but you can drink it right away if you want.
To serve, pour a small amount of syrup into a glass and add soda water and alcohol if desired. Enjoy!
*If you are using a jar with a metal lid use a piece of parchment between the lid and jar. The apple cider vinegar reacts with the metal and it will turn black if you don’t.
