Heart-Shaped Box | Cocktail Party

Heart-Shaped Box

Heart-Shaped Box cocktail from Death & Co., with strawberry, cognac, St. Germain, lemon juice, cinnamon syrup, balsamic vinegar, and Angostura bitters

The Heart-Shaped Box is perhaps one of the most criminally-underappreciated cocktails in the Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails book. Created by Brad Farran, it’s an explosion of inventive flavors with a perfect balance between sweet, spiced, and tart elements.

That little bit of balsamic vinegar is a master stroke, uniting the strawberry and lemon and cinnamon with its rich, raisin-y flavor. The whole thing smells incredible, like a newly-discovered fruit on some distant planet.

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry in your shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a short glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a strawberry half.
