Ok, I know it’s not quite summer, but here’s some wishful thinking, plus I like a good cocktail!
This is a sweet, flavoursome cocktail that goes down rather nicely and lets you pretend that it’s time to be watching Wimbledon!
I used a cocktail shaker, but you could just as easily make this in a blender and I used a standard shot glass for measurements. It’s a really easy, non fussy drink that can be whipped up in no time.
Makes 2 cocktails
- 400g strawberries (the freshest and sweetest you can get!)
- 6 tbsp caster sugar
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 4 shots of single cream
- 4 shots of vodka
- balsamic vinegar
Put the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a blender and whiz until smooth.
Put a good handful of ice into a cocktail shaker and add the strawberry mix, cream and vodka, Shake!
Pour into a glass and drip a couple of drops of balsamic into the middle (literally only a coupe of drops, don’t over do it!). Garnish with a rest strawberry.
