Kitchen Konfidence recently posted a wonderful article featuring my Strawberry Letter #22. Kitchen Konfidence is a major source of inspiration for great dishes and cocktails alike. It’s strawberry season so timing on this drink is perfect. I’ve featured this cocktail a couple times on my menu at our Libation Lounge event. Carbonated drinks are always popular come the warmer seasons.
- 2 oz light rum
- 3/4 oz Root Liqueur
- 1/2 oz lime juice
- 1/4 oz simple syrup
- 2–3 muddled strawberries
- Garnish with a strawberry
First muddle 2–3 strawberries in your cocktail shaker. Shake all ingredients with ice except the strawberry garnish. If you are going to carbonate the drink increase your ingredients to make at least 5 cocktails. The liquids should be chilled before adding to the Twist ‘n Sparkle. Once chilled, pour the liquids in to the Twist ‘n Sparkle and carbonate. Double strain into a ice filled old fashioned glass or serve up in a cocktail glass and garnish with a strawberry.
If you don’t want to carbonate this drink, just add ice to your shaker and shake until thoroughly chilled and prepare it the same way.Video by Kitchen Konfidence via You Tube
