Fraise Fizz

I was really excited to discover this recipe just when I was wondering what to do with my strawberry liqueur and raspberry syrup. What a combination! Imagine a Collins with fresh summer flavors. It is a great time of year to preserve fresh fruit in alcohol and use it in cocktails.

For the strawberry liqueur, I simply made a cooked strawberry syrup and added alcohol. See my recipe for the Belmont Stakes for this. In fact, if you have strawberry syrup on hand at all, just add a little rum or vodka and you have something like liqueur fraise in no time at all.
  •  2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. strawberry liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • club soda
  • lemon twist
  • whole strawberry
Combine gin, lemon juice, sugar and strawberry liqueur in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Collins glass full of ice. Top with soda and stir. Garnish with lemon twist and whole strawberry.
