Strawberry, Bloody Strawberry

Took me a few minutes to come up with a name for this. I went with a play on words for Sunday, Bloody Sunday by U2.

This cocktail is visually appealing, but it also goes down smoothly, and I highly recommend that it be on your list to drink this summer season!

Here’s how it went down —

Strawberry, Bloody Strawberry
1.5 oz. Pisco
0.5 oz. Campari
0.75 oz. Lime
bsp Maraschino Liqueur
Strawberry Simple to taste ( I used 2 ounces, since ours is a very light syrup)

Give all the ingredients a good shake
Strain it into a Catalina glass over fresh ice
Garnish it with a strawberry, and maybe dip the top of it in sugar

Notes: As mentioned, it does have a nice look to it, and it has just enough Campari in there to be noticed, but not to overwhelm anything with bitterness. The strawberry simple that we make is very subtle, so sometimes you need a bit to get the flavor you’re after. I forget if I’ve posted the recipe before, but I’ll throw it at the bottom of the post.
If you want to try anything we make on here, I think this one would be a good place to start. If you’re not a Pisco drinker, it might change your mind. =]

Strawberry Simple
1 cup water
.75 cup sugar
1 cup strawberries (cleaned and quartered)

Bring all ingredients to a boil over medium high heat.
Let boil for 10 minutes and then move to cool burner for additional 10 minutes.
Strain off solids, and you’re ready to rock and roll.
