It's Strawberry Season Y'all Part One

Updated: May 4

I love strawberries. When it gets to spring, all I think about is the fresh fruit that is about to be in my basket. In honor of my strawberry love, I'm sharing a few great cocktails for you to enjoy! Because it's not a celebration without a few cocktails. For this first part, I am sharing two cocktails that are a classic twists on go to cocktails.




When I'm feeling Straw-ready

Strawberry Margarita


Ingredients

2 oz Tequila

1 oz Grand Marnier

3/4 oz Mezcal

1 oz Lime juice

1/4 oz Simple Syrup

4 muddled Strawberries

Garnish: Salt Rim and Strawberry


Recipe: I love this cocktail twist on the classic margarita. Strawberries add a level of sweetness and freshness to the margarita. To make it, you muddle strawberry slices with some simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Then add ice, lime juice, grand mariner, mezcal, and tequila. Give it a big shake and pour into your margarita glass. I like to rim my glass beforehand with a salt rim and add ice before pouring the cocktail in. I also add a fresh strawberry to add a little fruit with your cocktail! Simple and enjoyable.




I'm more Sweet than Sour

Whiskey Sour

Ingredients

2 oz Bourbon

1 oz Lemon juice

6 dashes of Sassafras Bitters

4 muddled Strawberries

Garnish: Strawberry



Recipe: I love whiskey sours because they are so simple and so rewarding. This cocktail is a super easy refreshing twist on the whiskey sour. You muddle strawberries in a cocktail shaker. Then add ice and pour bourbon, lemon juice, and dashes of sassafras bitters. Shake it all up and serve over ice in a old fashioned glass. It's a perfect cocktail for when you want something sweet but nothing that is overwhelming.
