This is just one of the strawberry gins on the site and the difference is that this gin has a more subtle strawberry flavour and a blush appearance
As no sugar has been added to the recipe, this drink is best served as one part gin to two parts tonic and garnish with a fresh strawberry
Lightly crush the black peppercorns in a pestle and mortar. Heat a dry frying pan on the hob to a medium heat and then gently toast the peppercorns for 30 seconds and remove from the heat
In a clean and sterilised Kilner jar, add the strawberries, toasted peppercorns, crushed cardamom, lemon zest, gin and seal the jar.
Keep in a cool dark and dry place and give a gentle shake a few times a day
After 3 days, decant the gin from the Kilner through a coffee filter and funnel into a clean bottle.
Tighten the lid and drink within 3 weeks
