Apologies to Steve if I am late with this Friday's cocktail. I got the impression you were starting "pretty" early today?????
Another refreshing summer time drink that incorporates fresh seasonal strawberries....
This makes about 10 drinks so hold on to your hats!!!!!!
3 lbs strawberries cleaned and coarsely chopped
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup + 2 Tbl citrus VODKA
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/3 cup chilled Riesling
In a bowl, toss the strawberries with the sugar and let stand, stirring occasionally until the strawberries release their juices - about 10 minutes......
(Have a glass of the Riesling while you wait)
In a blender, combine half each of the strawberries and their juices, the vodka and lime juice with with 1 cup of ice and puree. Pour into a pitcher. Repeat with remaining strawberries and juices, vodka and lime juice with another cup of ice. If you have an industrial blender or food processor or are just making a smaller batch there is no need to divide.
Fill 10 collins size glasses (slightly smaller than a pint glass) halfway with ice. Pour the drink into the glasses. Top each with a 1/2 Tbl Riesling and serve.
Sounds super sweet, but the citrus vodka and lime even things out!
Happy Weekend....My kids are coming to visit - HURRAY!!!!
