I’ve been really busy this last week, but I still have time to read, so all I need is time to write, otherwise I’ll forget all I have learned.
I just pureed some strawberries and made some juice and, of course, a cocktail.
- 1½oz fresh strawberries puree
- 2oz Brandy
- ½oz Aperol
- ¼oz Simple Syrup
- 1ds Angostura Bitters
Shake and strain into an ice filled highball glass. Garnish with a halved strawberry.
This was delicious, juicy and well balanced.
The bitters were last time inclusion, since the drink was good, but missing something.
Aperol is a nice sweetner and, since I hadn’t limes, a nice bitter component to compliment the sweetness of the drink.
Maybe I need some Acid phosphate in my house.

Cheers to my baby, which was approved this week in the college entrance! Gotta drink to that!
