This Pimm’s Cup riff from the new outpost of the Fat Radish in Savannah brings Italian liqueur Strega to the glass for a touch of saffron, then brightens things with a fresh strawberry syrup.

1 oz. Pimm’s No. 1
½ oz. gin
½ oz. Strega
½ oz. strawberry syrup
¼ oz. fresh lemon juice
Ginger beer, to top
3 blueberries
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: wine glass
Garnish: mint sprig, orange slice, half strawberry, blueberries

Combine all the ingredients except the ginger beer in a shaker, add ice and shake to chill. Add ginger beer, then strain over fresh ice. Garnish.

Strawberry Syrup: Slice ½ cup of ripe strawberries thinly and combine them with 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and let sit for 2 hours for a slow infusion. Add ½ a teaspoon of citric acid and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
