It's strawberry season! This is the time of year when I gorge myself on ripe strawberries and try to think of every recipe I can make with them. I'm also fond of mixing any delicious seasonal fruit with alcohol and pretending I'm a fancy mixologist. While this drink looks super fancy and will definitely wow your guests, the recipe is actually pretty easy. There isn't any infusing or straining, just a little muddling. Serve this at your next bbq and your sure to make your guests berry happy!
- 4 ripe strawberries
- 1 sprig of mint
- 1/2 lime
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 ounce Elderflower Liqueur (St Germain)
- 1 ounce Gin
In a shaker, muddle the strawberries, mint, lime and sugar. Add ice and the pour the Elderflower Liqueur and Gin on top. Shake 2-4 times. Pour into a lowball (rocks) glass, fill with Seltzer, give a stir and garnish with a strawberry.
