Strawberry & Shiso Cooler

. July 7, 2010

A  suspended and blissful moment I cherish on a hot summer day: my fan on, a cool breeze, a good book while drinking a cooler with one of my favorite fruits: strawberries. This cooler made in seconds with savory strawberries, shiso juice, agave nectar and very cold mineral sparkling water. On the picture above I sprinkled the drink with some edible decorations: red hearts I bought in Dublin. 
Shiso leaves are mainly used in Chinese and Japanese cuisine. A flavor between citrus mint and basil.
