Its coming up to Strawberry season so this easy and tasty cocktail is a winner to make at home.
For one serving
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 lime wedge
3 fresh strawberries, 2 hulled and sliced and 1 reserved for garnish
A single or double gin depending on preferred taste
Soda water or Indian tonic
pink peppercorns, mint or basil would be great for added garnish and depending on what you can get hold of.
HOW TO MAKE IT
In a glass, combine the sugar and a squeeze of juice from the lime wedge. You can use pre-made lime juice if you don't have fresh limes around the house. Muddle with the back of a spoon to dissolve the sugar. Add the sliced strawberries and lightly muddle. Fill the glass with ice and add the gin. Top with a splash of soda water or tonic and garnish with the last strawberry and a sprig of mint/ pink peppercorns or basil.
