The Case for Cocktails

With spring in the forecast for this weekend, at least where we are, "The Case of Cocktails" is certainly an appropriate post!

Strawberry Daiquiri

The honorable occasion of EnglishMuffin’s own Bess’s birthday a few weeks ago was celebrated with a Strawberry Daiquiri, whose recipe (slightly modified) from the book, “The Ultimate Bar Book” by Mittie Hellmich is as follows:

Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri
2 ounces light rum
1 ounce fresh lime juice
½ ounce simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, boiled and chilled)
½ cup sliced strawberries
¼ ounce crème de framboise
garnish: lime slice or strawberry

Shake the liquid ingredients vigorously with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish.

If you’ve never had them, try Daiquiris in classic, strawberry, banana, watermelon or peach.

Other drinks to try: Margarita, Martini, Fuzzy Navel, Mint Julep, Mojito (mo-HEE-to), Kir, Whiskey Sour, Long Island Iced Tea, Mai Tai, Pina Colada, Tequila Sunrise, Bloody Mary, Cosmopolitan, Manhattan, White Russian, Caipirinha (pronounced Car-pre-EEN-ya).
