Directions

  1. Boil water and sugar in a pan until they form a syrup. Allow to cool in the refrigerator.
  2. Mince the chives and keep cool in a bowl. Do the same with the basil and mint, each in separate bowls.
  3. When the syrup has cooled, pour an equal amount into each of the three bowls of herbs and allow to marinate for 2 hours.
  4. Cut the strawberries into cubes and arrange them in 12 small glasses (such as shot glasses). Pour the mint syrup into 4 glasses, the basil syrup into 4 others, and the chive syrup into the remaining 4.
  5. Serve right away, 3 glasses per person.
