Mighty Thirst: Strawberry Fizzy

Summer is coming for you, and the Strawberry Fizzy is waiting there, poolside. With a New Yorker magazine and the good tortilla chips.

Strawberry Fizzy

3 mint leaves
3 Strawberries
Shot of vodka
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Ginger Ale

Muddle mint and strawberries in your glass, add ice, vodka, the lemon juice, and top it off with Ginger Ale. Then start making the next one, because someone’s gonna take yours.

Here’s to smelling like coconut, floating on your back until your foot bumps the pool ledge, and spitting cherry seeds into the grass. What are you toasting this week?

1. Shots in ‘Cots 2. Avocado Bourbon Shake 3. The Vacation 4. Sassy Lassi 5. Cherry Bing 6. The ABC 7. Toddy Shots 8. Cafe Picante 9. Gin and Juice (Box) 10. The Neighbor 11.

    This look delicious! I have some fresh mint growing that would be perfect, (although I may substitute champagne in lieu of the ginger ale.)
