Cocktail

  2. Place Florida Strawberries in cocktail shaker with strawberry honey syrup and muddle strawberries until juicy. You may let this mixture sit for a few minutes to extract more juice.
  3. Add remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker
  4. Shake until chilled
  5. Strain into a martini glass or if you want to serve it 1920’s style, use a coupe glass. If you want to go for rustic chic, serve it over ice in a mason jar. This is a cocktail you can dress up or down, and it will always be classy.
  6. Garnish with a strawberry or a lemon twist
  7. This recipe is easily adapted to your taste. Want it more tart? Add more lemon juice. Don’t want it as sweet? Just reduce the strawberry honey syrup.
Strawberry Honey Syrup
  1. Place ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously until honey is dissolved.
  2. Do not heat this mixture in a pot as you would when making a traditional simple syrup. Honey should not be heated.
  3. Store any unused syrup in the refrigerator
