NoMad’s Leo Robitschek borrows Chef Daniel Humm’s strawberry pickling vinegar for a housemade shrub, which is shaken with cucumber and yellow Chartreuse and topped with a dose of wheat beer for a modern take on the radler. At home, white wine vinegar works in place of pickling vinegar.
- 1/2 ounce yellow Chartreuse
- 1/2 ounce lemon juice
- 1/2 ounce cane syrup (2:1, sugar:water)
- 1 ounce strawberry saline shrub (see Editor's Note)
- Berliner Weisse, to top
- In a shaker tin, combine all ingredients and shake with ice.
- Strain into a highball glass and top with Berliner Weisse.
Strawberry Saline Shrub:
1 cup white wine vinegar
1 cup water
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Muddle strawberries in the sugar. Combine with white wine vinegar, water and kosher salt. Allow the mixture to sit overnight and then strain.
