Bourbon and fresh strawberries are a match made in cocktail heaven in this summery cocktail.
2 oz. bourbon
2 fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
3/4 oz. ginger syrup (equal parts fresh ginger juice and granulated sugar)
1/2 oz. honey syrup (1:1 honey dissolved in water)
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
2 dashes rhubarb bitters (click here for a DIY recipe)
Tools: shaker, muddler, strainer
Garnish: fresh strawberry slice and mint sprig
In a shaker, muddle the strawberries with the honey syrup. Add the remaining ingredients, except the club soda, and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass, top with soda and garnish.
