Strawberry Cocktail

Strawberry Cocktail
Pass 1 lb. of strawberries through a hair-sieve, and pour the juice into the shaker, together with the juice of an orange and a dash of Whiskey. Add a few pieces of ice. Shake carefully and serve.

Luckily it is Strawberry season!

I juiced 1 pint of Strawberries with my cast aluminum Universal Juicer and poured it into a cocktail shaker. Added the juice of 1/2 large Valencia Orange. Added a splash of W.L. Weller 12. Shook briefly and double strained into cocktail glasses.

Is it tasty? Yes. Is it a cocktail? Not really, it’s fruit juice with a dash of whisky. Surprised this isn’t in the “Cocktails Suitable for a Prohibition Country” or “Non-Alcoholic Cocktails” section of the book.

Kind of a fun fruit tonic for Spring Strawberry season, I suppose.

I think I would prefer it, and it would be much more economical, if you made it as a long drink, over ice, with soda or ginger ale.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
