Drink This: Strawberry Ginger Sweet Tart

Enjoy this refreshing drink and toast to the end of season.
by: Columnist Columnist

The fresh Florida Strawberries are bursting with sweet natural sugars this year. Blended with the right balance of ginger, I’ve found a perfect blend to serve as a brunch cocktail or while floating in the pool.


  • 1 ½ ounces vodka
  • ½ ounce strawberry shrub
  • ½ ounce Cointreau
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 bar spoon strawberry-ginger maceration
  • Ginger beer


In a mixing tin filled with ice, combine all ingredients except for the ginger beer and shake well. Pour cocktail into a tall glass and finish with ginger beer. Garnish with strawberry-ginger maceration and a lime peel.

Strawberry-ginger maceration: peel and slice an inch of ginger root and combine in a sealable container with cleaned diced ripe strawberries. Drizzle ½ cup of white sugar on top and let sit for an hour or two to allow to macerate.
