Bourbon and fresh, juicy strawberries just scream summertime to us, and so it’s no wonder that the Bourbon Street (by Dave Whitton and Arianna Reel Cook at One-Eyed Gypsy in Los Angeles) has become our cookout go-to when the weather starts to warm up.
If you’re fresh out of club soda or plain sparkling water, we can attest that the Bourbon Street is just as lovely when topped with a lemon- or strawberry-flavored sparkling water.
Muddle the strawberries and syrups in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients (except the sparkling water) and shake very well. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass, top with sparkling water, and garnish with a strawberry and a mint leaf.
