Chivas Seasonal Serves: strawberry and nutmeg syrup



Cordials, syrups, sherbets, shrubs and superb Chivas serves to see you through the whole year.

This month’s Chivas Seasonal Serve from Josh Reynolds, Global Winner of the Chivas Masters Cocktail Competition 2015, is super simple and super refreshing. Give it a try!

Strawberry and nutmeg syrup

“What’s more summery than strawberries?” asks Josh. “Nothing, that’s what! This drink is summer in a glass, not too boozy either. Aperol and strawberry work brilliantly together to give the drink a fruity, inviting nature, while the nutmeg latches onto the Chivas and the prosecco is there to lift everything with a nice fizz.”

500g chopped strawberries
500g caster sugar
3.2g grated nutmeg

Add all ingredients to a container, shake hard and leave for 24 hours. Strain and bottle.

Use it in the following:

30ml Chivas Regal 12 yo
20ml strawberry and nutmeg syrup
10ml Aperol
10ml lemon juice
Prosecco to top

Stir all ingredients, except prosecco, in a wine glass with cubed ice. Top with the prosecco, stir again and garnish with a mint sprig and orange slice.

Watch Josh make his strawberry and nutmeg syrup and suggested serve
