Homemade Strawberry Syrup

Posted in : Drinks on by : Mike Tags: ,

Its been a while since I posted anything new since we were on vacation.  While we on vacation we found a bartender who made us the most amazing Strawberry martini topped with Champagne.  More on that in a different post, but one of the core ingredients for the drink was strawberry syrup.  Trying to find strawberry syrup for a bar is tough.  Most liquor stores don’t seem to sell it.

I tried Amazon and the best I could find was here.  And that just seemed too expensive.  So I found a recipe from Tori Avry (http://toriavey.com/toris-kitchen/2013/05/strawberry-simple-syrup/) that I really liked.  I changed it just slightly with some lemon juice to bring down the sweetness a little bit for bar usage.
