A few months ago we created a blog revolving around specialty drinks for your wedding day cocktail hour.
I think right then and there we decided we’d have to sample at least one…or all…and maybe make up a few on our own.
Yesterday we decided to get crafty and I think I can successfully say we designed the Tailored Engagements signature drink.
We know you want the recipe:
Strawberry Lime Crush
This summery cocktail is perfect for sipping on the porch after a long day in the office. The sweetness of the strawberries, tang of the lime and spice of the ginger meld together perfectly.
2 oz vodka
4 oz ginger beer (We used Boylan)
1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
4 strawberries sliced (two for each drink)
Fresh mint leaves
Lime slice for garnish
Shake (we shook) or muddle vodka, strawberry slices and mint leaves with ice and strain into a glass (over ice). Add lime juice. Pour the ginger beer over top. Garnish with a thin slice of lime and a sprig of mint. Optional: Add a parasol so you feel absolutely at ease.
TIP: As sad as I am to admit this, we didn’t have a fancy pants cocktail shaker. Instead we used a coffee thermos and just made sure the lid was closed tight. Still got the job done.
It is not detrimental to strain the fruit and mint from your shaker; we solely did for aesthetic reasons even though we ended up adding more strawberry slices in.
