Strawberry Ginger Cocktail Recipe

Notes:

• For more “strawberry” in your cocktail, muddle some fresh strawberries at the bottom of your tall cocktail glass before making this lovely cocktail. “Muddle” sounds odd, but all you are doing is basically smushing mint, spices or fruits to release more of the flavor. You can use a muddler or some other smashing tool (mortar and pestle) to mash fruits, herbs and spices in the bottom of a glass or bowl.

•This cocktail drink uses strawberries (because almost everyone likes strawberries and they pair well with the other ingredients), but you could use raspberries or blackberries to change up the taste.
