Ingredients

For the Simple Syrup:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

For the cocktail

  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons pureed fresh strawberries strained through a fine mesh strainer*
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cointreau or triple sec I used Cointreu
  • granulated sugar for the rim of the glasses

Instructions 

Prepare the simple syrup:

  • Place the sugar and water in a small saucepan and heat over low heat until the sugar melts. Heat over medium low until heated through, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Prepare the cocktails:

  • Place some granulated sugar on a small plate. Wet the rim of the glasses with water and dip them in the sugar. Set aside.
  • Place the vodka, simple syrup, lemon juice, strawberry puree, and Cointreau or triple sec in a small pitcher or large measuring cup and whisk to combine. Add ice and stir. Alternately, you can use a cocktail shaker.
  • Pour the cocktail into the glasses, serve, and enjoy!

Notes

  • I pureed 1 cup of strawberries in a blender, which yielded just under 1/2 cup or so of puree. Just refrigerate the leftovers or make more than 2 cocktails!
  • Leftover simple syrup may be stored in an air tight container in the fridge. The nutrition information includes all of the simple syrup, though you won't need it all.
  • The cocktail is still a bit on the strong side with the simple syrup, but with the sugared rim, it's just perfect.
  • Cointreau is optional, but it adds a nice depth of flavor. Plus it's great in margaritas, too!
