Florida Strawberry Cocktail | A Glass of Strawberries |

Florida Strawberry Cocktail

Our new Social Media Manager, Tori, made this Florida Strawberry Cocktail the other day.  This is the prefect quarantine cocktail, very simple ingredient list that most people have around.  Aperol is orange flavored so if you have triple sec, curacao, or Cointreau, give them a try, it just may be a bit more boozy.   It tastes exactly like a fresh Florida Strawberry in a glass.  So perfectly balanced, and so simple. 

It took about six iterations to make this cocktail, we added all sorts of syrups, fruits, and liqueur.  In the end simplicity won out.  

Bravo Tori, welcome to the blog! Thanks for the amazing Florida Strawberry Cocktail.

For your happy hour menu

Really great cocktails are about balance, skill, and quality.  If you think about it that is parable for life, and certainly for cooking.  About 6 months ago my beautiful wife, daughter, and I went to Manhattan, and ended up at a high-end bar called “Death & Co”.   I fell in love, this was cocktail heaven.  My wife purchased their second recipe book for me called the “Cocktail Codex: Fundamentals, Formulas, Evolutions” when we got home.  I learned I knew almost nothing about making a fantastic cocktail.  The great news is it is not very hard to make great ones.  I just needed an honest guide and practice.  One caveat about this book; it is written by skilled bartenders for skilled bartenders.  They have ingredients we mere mortals may never make, but it is very informative.
