This SO smells like a Kellogg’s Nutri Grain bar, it’s not even funny.
Steeped, the strawberry is tarter, and unsurprisingly, the liquor is murky due to the brittle overkill. And brittle overkill, is right. Much too sweet for my tastes.
When this is hot, the strawberry is so tart that it mimics hibiscus. But once this cools off, the hibiscus wannabe dies off and you’re left with a clear strawberry again.
The base is very weak. Granted I steeped this for not quite four minutes. Perhaps this would make a better cold brew? I should save the rest to try that out sometime.
Instead of brittle, this should have a cakey note. I demand strawberry shortcake, not strawberry brittle!
