Strawberry Contessa

Strawberry Contessa gin cocktail

We don’t need any help getting through a bottle of Lillet Blanc (our favorite white wine apéritif), but we had just made some incredible strawberry syrup and then we found this recipe from Las Vegas’ Rx Boiler Room in Imbibe magazine – how could we refuse Fate?

The Strawberry Contessa is a wonderful way to showcase your own homemade strawberry syrup. It has such a fresh, beautiful flavor, like a strawberry just barely on the edge of overripeness. Make sure your white tonic apéritif is fresh; after opening, it only lasts for a week, maybe two, in the fridge.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with ice, and strain into a short ice-filled glass. Top with sparkling water, and garnish with a sprig of mint or a slice of strawberry.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
