Recipe Card


  • For the strawberry syrup:
  • 8 ounces strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 3 inches fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 3 sliced orange peel, cut into 3 inch strips
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • For the Cockail:
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry orange ginger syrup
  • 6 ounces sparkling water and/or champagne
  • 2 ice cubes
  • half an orange slice, half a hulled strawberry, and a sprig of mint, to garnish


  • Step 1

    To make the syrup, place all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about five minutes, until the liquid surrounding the fruit is a bright pinkish-red and the strawberries themselves are much less vibrant.

  • Step 2

    Let the syrup cool for five minutes, then pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl or jar, using a spoon to push on the solids in the strainer to extract as much liquid as possible.

  • Step 3

    Allow the syrup to cool to room temperature before making drinks with it, or store covered in the refrigerator for up to a week.

  • Step 4

    To make each drink, put 2-3 tablespoons of syrup in the bottom of an 8- to 10-ounce glass. You can always start with two tablespoons and add more later if you'd like. Pour in sparkling water and/or champagne until the glass is almost full. Add two ice cubes. Garnish with a halved orange slice, half a strawberry, and a sprig of mint, and serve right away.
