These strawberries are not quite in season
We wish really good strawberries would arrive soon. Until then we’ll keep drowning the substandard ones we’re buying — in hopes they’re the real deal — in alcohol.
- 2 large strawberries
- 1-2 sugar cubes
- 4 mint leaves
- 1 1/2 oz rum
- tonic water
In the bottom of a Collins glass muddle the strawberries, mint and sugar. Top with rum and a few ice cubes. Fill glass with tonic water. The drink can be strained before the tonic water is added to remove the pulp. We enjoyed the drink both ways.
