Strawberry Martini – a Summer Drink from London

This summer concoction can be traced back to London in 1990s. Though far from a Martini, this drink is packed with the goodness of strawberries.

It is boozy, it is summery, and it is perfect for a warm evening spent in your garden among friends and loved ones.

Tip 1: To ensure a delicious cocktail with a great texture, strain the strawberry pulp out with a fine sieve when pouring into the glass. We find that the pulp interferes with a good drinking experience.

Tip 2: To get an intense fruit flavor, and if you have the time, cook a strawberry syrup with fresh strawberries. To make this, bring a equal parts water and sugar to a boil. Then add the same volume chopped strawberries into the boiling mixture and let it rest until cool. Then refrigerate for 4-5 hrs to allow the fruit to steep in. Use the liquid without the fruit.
