Normally when I use strawberries in cocktails I muddle them. It’s easy and gets the job done in a pinch. This time, however, I wanted to do something a little different but I still wanted to use fresh berries. So, I made a puree – strawberries and sugar. Slightly more work than muddling, but worth the effort. Oh, and if you have any puree left after enjoying this strawberry gin cocktail, put it to use the next day with some bubbles. It would make for a fantastic bellini.
