Strawberry Cosmopolitan

Cranberry is red and sweet, but strawberry is redder and sweeter. This cocktail has brilliant color and a refreshing fruity flavor.

Strawberry Cosmopolitan

8 oz fresh ripe strawberries
2t sugar
Juice of ½ lime
1 oz orange liqueur
2 oz vodka

Muddle strawberries and sugar. Press through strainer to yield 1 oz juice. Combine juice with other ingredients and shake with ice. Serve in a cocktail glass.

Variation: For a simpler strawberry flavor, reduce but do not omit the lime juice.
