Slippery When Wet
The Slippery When Wet, from Shannon Tebay at Death & Co., was our very first foray into yogurt cocktails, and we were nervous about how it would turn out. We needn’t have worried – the yogurt works beautifully here, producing a cocktail that tastes just like a homemade strawberry cheesecake.
Tebay calls for Greek yogurt, which has a stronger flavor and firmer constitution than regular plain yogurt. You can use either one, but you’ll get more of a cheesecake-y flavor with Greek yogurt.
Muddle the strawberries in a shaker, along with the honey and lemon juice. Add the gin and yogurt, and shake with ice. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a slice of strawberry and a dusting of freshly-ground black pepper.
