A Perfect Strawberry Daiquiri with GungHo

Cocktail Masterclass with GungHo Bar

Seasonal, sustainable and sexy, the cocktails at GungHo give us all the feels. Julien challenges the cocktail norm with his drinks list, offering guests a unique experience with every visit. GungHo’s dark and moody interior lures you in and greets you with neon lighting, funky beats and warm, welcoming staff. Julien offers a visionary insight into the future of cocktails, and we couldn’t think of a better teacher for a masterclass. Here, he shows us how to make a GungHo take on a classic Strawberry Daiquiri.

Strawberry + Basil Shrub

1 kg locally grown strawberries
1 bunch of basil
1 litre raw cider vinegar
1 litre white wine vinegar
1 litre water

Let infuse in a large jar for 2 months, shaking every now and then

1 – Strain the liquid through a muslin cloth

2 – Make a sugar syrup (dissolve 2 parts sugar to 1 part water)

3 – Mix equal volume of the strawberry and basil vinegar with the 2:1 sugar syrup

4 – Spread the strained sediment on a baking tray and dehydrate in the oven (low heat, for a few hours), then you can sprinkle it on top of the cocktail!
