Lately I’ve been on a strawberry kick. They just taste like summer to me. My hubby hates them because of the tiny seeds, but that’s actually one of the things I like most about them.
I’m determined to visit a local u-pick strawberry patch this year.
Check out that giant berry! Yum.
I had a basket of them hiding in the back of my fridge that I forgot about for a couple days, so they were a bit too soft for my taste… BUT! I recently came across this recipe for a “Strawberry Balsamic (Gin) Spritz” and I knew this was the perfect opportunity to make it.
Something about the flavour combination of the sweet strawberries and tart/tangy balsamic vinegar made it SO good.
It made about 1.75 cups of syrup so I also used it just mixed with some soda water for a nice refreshing drink on those nights where I didn’t necessarily want a cocktail (which, let’s face it, isn’t all that often ;)
