About this Cocktail

Strawberries on fire.

  • 2 oz bourbon, e.g., Bulleit
  • 1 oz jalapeño and strawberry syrup (see below)
  • 0.5 oz lime juice
  • Ginger beer

Clean and quarter a pint of strawberries. Place in a sauce pan with a cup of sugar and heat on low until sugar has dissolved. Add a jalapeño that's been sliced into strips, seeds included, as well as a few slices of ginger and a half a cup of water. When the strawberries have lost their structure, put through a mesh strainer and press/mash as many of the strawberries through. Transfer to a sterilized jar for storage. Build the cocktail in a Collins glass. Enjoy with a garnish of strawberry and thinly sliced jalapeño.
