Strawberry – Brugge Rodenbach cheese – Tequila – Gueuze

The aroma of Brugge Rodenbach cheese is a combination of cheesy, creamy, fruity, roasted and floral notes. Strawberry is fruity, cheesy, green, roasted and floral, making a good fit to this cheese.

In this cocktail we build on the floral and fruitiness by adding tequila and Gueuze. Sugar syrup and lemon juice is to balance the taste.

Gueuze and strawberry are sour. If your replace them, you have to balance out the recipe.

Preparations (6 persons)

  • 100 g Strawberry
  • 15 ml Sugar syrup
  • 22,5 ml Lemon juice
  • 45 ml Tequila
