Mixology September 20 2013
I realize summer might have ended a couple of weeks ago but it has still been nice and warm out (until today). As my end of summer drink I figured I should make Dios request! Since strawberries are about to become much harder to come by. So here we go. Dio asked for a strawberry shortcake drink. I”m doing this martini style though there are a tonne of recipes out there to choose from! With that in mind, realize that I choose what I liked ( and took some advice from my mix master Stone) and you can always switch some things up to tweak it to your tastes. You need vodka of some yummy flavour. I found recipes that called for cake, whip cream, vanilla or Pinnacle even makes a strawberry shortcake flavoured vodka. I picked a Whip Cream one, since that’s what I could find. You also need fresh strawberries, heavy cream and some graham crumbs for the rim. Before hand you will want to make a strawberry puree from your strawberries. You can use fresh or frozen for this. Also make sure you prep your glass by rimming it with some graham cracker crumbs. Add 3 ounces of your puree to a shaker with ice, 1.5 ounces of heavy cream and 1.5 ounces of your vodka. Shake and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with whip cream and a strawberry. It’s that easy.
Hope to see everyone on Friday during Cherry’s show at 12 midnight EST/ 9pm PST. Rock on.
