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.

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
