Strawberry Sting

Chilli and strawberry are the surprising pair that yo
u won’t be able to get enough of! Especially when summer wants to say ‘hello’ in late autumn – or when friends spontaneously pop around with a devilish cheese platter.

Ingredients:
30mL wildbrumby devil’s tongue
30mL strawberry syrup
soda water
punnet of strawberries

How to make it:

To make your strawberry simple syrup, quarter 5 strawberries before mashing in a small pot. Add 100g white sugar and 120mL water to the pot. Bring to a simmer and stir till the sugar has dissolved before taking it off the heat. Once the mixture has cooled and taken on a reddish-pink colour, strain the contents into a small jug.

Now that you have your strawberry syrup – it’s go time! Pour wildbrumby devil’s tongue schnapps and your strawberry syrup into an ice filled glass. Top with soda water and garnish with halved strawberries.

This recipe will make 6 servings. Bottomless Strawberry Stings anyone?
