  • Sparkling water, to taste

Strawberry Basil Shrub Syrup

  • 1 pint(s) fresh strawberries
  • 3 sprigs basil, to taste
  • 4 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 quart(s) red wine vinegar

Strawberry Basil Shrub Directions

  1. Cover the strawberries and basil with the sugar. Refrigerate for 24 hours, then add the red wine vinegar.
  2. Let sit for another 24 hours, then stir to dissolve any remaining sugar and strain out the solids.
