How to make a Strawberry Angostura Bitters:
- Wash and weigh Wash the strawberries then weigh them out on scales to get the desired amount. You will likely need to cut off a portion of a strawberry to get the weight you need, which is likely around 2 ½ strawberries, unless you’re making a very large batch
Slice all the weighed out strawberries and add them to a clean glass jar.
Measure and add in Angostura Bitters and close with a lid.
Give the jar a good swirl to ensure the slices are all in contact with the liquid.
Leave to macerate for 2-3 days
Strain out the strawberries with a fine strainer.
Bottle the now strawberry infused Angostura Bitters.
Keep the finished product in a sealed container in the fridge to retain flavours for longer.
