Some drinks leave a sour taste in your mouth. And that can be a good thing. Drinking a citric acid-based drink at a fancy cocktail joint gave me a nervous feeling, as if Ashton Kutcher might lunge out of the freezer at any moment to announce I’d been punk’d by something made from the same stuff as powdered lemonade.
2 oz Vodka
0.75 oz Orange Liqueur
0.25 oz White Creme de Cacao
0.5 oz Strawberry juice
Combine all ingredients into your cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 12 seconds. Strain into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with orange zest.
