Strawberries are plentiful in Florida in April. In fact, right now Florida has an over abundance of strawberries and they are reasonably priced. This means that I am buying more strawberries than I need and am looking for ways to use them.
I can’t think of a more perfect way to use fresh strawberries than in a refreshing cocktail. I will tell you that the fruit used in this cocktail should be as ripe and as fresh as possible to produce the most flavor. A dash of simple syrup should only be used to ripen the fruit flavor and is not intended to create a frou-frou a/k/a syrupy sweet drink.
