Sparkling Strawberry Punch with Schisandra Berry

Delicious and exotic sparkling strawberry punch with schisandra berry!

Sparkling Strawberry Punch with Schisandra Berries | MyKoreanKitchen.com

Today, I’m sharing a thirst quenching sparkling strawberry punch recipe. (To avoid your disappointment, I will be up front. This is a non alcoholic punch recipe!)

What’s quite different about this strawberry punch recipe is that it’s blended with schisandra berry!

A few weeks ago, I shared my Omija tea (schisandra berry tea) recipe and I believe today’s recipe is a great variation to that!

Schisandra berry is known as five flavor berry as it has five different unique flavors – sourness, sweetness, bitterness, pungentness, and saltiness, all at the same time.

And, by combining the schisandra berries with some fresh strawberries, it brings out the sweetness and fruitiness of schisandra berries even more. The overall flavor is totally enhanced and the punch gives a really nice exotic complex flavor! (Of course, adding honey and sugar helps too!) 😉

I know many of you already bought some schisandra berries after I shared the tea recipe, so this recipe will be a great bonus.

Hope you try it soon! It’s a fancy drink that will impress your guests at a party. Certainly a great conversation starter! Enjoy!
