I have had a bottle of Monin Strawberry Syrup lurking in my kitchen for ages now and I decided it was high time I did something with it. Monin syrups are used in most coffee shops, bars and restaurants, Cafe Nero's strawberry milkshake is made using this syrup and I like it because it doesn't have that horrid artificial taste you often get with such things.
There is no recipe as such, I just filled the bottle nearly to the top with milk and added about 2 tbsp of syrup. I'm not a huge milk drinker so after marveling at the utter adorableness of my gorgeous glass bottled strawberry milk and tasting a little to check the strawberry flavour was OK, I popped it in the fridge till Mr. P. came home.
I was amazed at the joy in Mr. P. eyes when I presented him with his strawberry milk, he was like a little boy and it did make me giggle. He drank the entire bottle in one go and said the strength of the strawberry flavour was perfect. I will definitely make this again and since the weather is getting nicer now I may make some thick milkshakes too.
I just love my gorgeous glass bottle and it looks so cute in pink.◦
