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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
