Ten Quick smart Things to do With Strawberries: Day Four


Cocktail time at last!

Several years ago I celebrated the publication of my new book, Pure Dessert, with a party at the Hangar One/St. George Spirits Tasting Room. Better still (so to speak) the party was not actually in the tasting room, but in the hangar in front of the gorgeous copper still.  So chic yet industrial, and of course it smelled divine in there. Obviously we drank cocktails with all of the desserts. Two of them featured ripe strawberries.

THE ALICE COCKTAIL-aka THE BERRY FAIRY 
By Bay Area writer and mixologist, Lou Bustamante

1 muddled ripe strawberry
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 1/2 ounces Hangar One Mandarin Blossom Vodka 
1/4 ounce St. George Absinthe Verte

Shake all of the ingredients with ice, strain and serve up, in a martini glass. 



THE ANDIE/ALICE WHISKEY COCKTAIL
By Voka Vixen, Andie Ferman

1 1/2 ounces St. George Single Malt Whiskey (or a non-peaty single malt of your choice)
1/4 ounce lemon juice
1 muddled ripe strawberry
Dash of simple syrup

Shake all of the ingredients with ice, strain and serve up, in a sour glass.
