Cocktail: The Ozark Beauty | Bartender: Raj Rijhwani

A summery, refreshing take on a Caipiroska loaded with strawberries, honey, lemon, ginger and black pepper. This drink can almost cure you of scurvy or any ails that you may have.

Cocktail: The Ozark Beauty | Bartender Atlas

2oz Dillon’s vodka
1oz Strawberry Ginger Shrub*
0.25oz lemon juice
2 strawberries

Shake all the ingredients with ice and strain in a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a strawberry rose.

*Strawberry Ginger Shrub: chop up 6 medium strawberries and 1-inch ginger and lay it in a thin layer in a wide bowl. Add 1 cup sugar on top. Let sit for 4 to 6 hours. Transfer the mixture to an airtight jar, add 4 tablespoons of honey, 1 cup apple cider and 12 cracks of fresh ground pepper. Stir well and refrigerate for 24 hours and strain using a fine mesh strainer. Et voila!
