Strawberry Daiquiri with GungHo Bar

The Strawberry Daiquiri, from Brighton cocktail Bar and BRAVO award winner Gung-Ho.

Seasonal, sustainable and sexy, the cocktails at Gung-Ho 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.

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!
