Strawberry Purée


Yes, you've seen the picture before - it's a Frosty Wild Strawberry Cocktail. Here, however, is an easy recipe for strawberry purée - a great base for many, many drinks. My bartender source says that frozen strawberries are actually better to use here than fresh ones - the flavor is more intense.

The purée keeps for a few days in the fridge, and can also be frozen.

Strawberry Purée
500 g frozen strawberries, thawed for an hour or so
2-3 tbsp powdered sugar
100 ml water

Use a blender to liquidise the berries. Add some sugar and water until it's as thick as you like it.

Then use in all your summer drinks - yum!

There aren't many things that frozen strawberries are good for! This will definitely come in useful later in the year. :)

Looks fantastic. If you have strawberries with a weak taste, add some concentrated orange juice and to get a rich flawour.
