Agua Frescatini

Strawberry Agua Frescatini

This weekend I made up a new martini drink using my Strawberry Agua Fresca as a base.

First you need to make the agua fresca:

1 pint strawberries
1 c. sugar
1 lime
4 c. water

Chop strawberries in small chunks (I use a chopper to make this go faster.) Add sugar & lime, mix and let the strawberries macerate for at least 2-3 hours. After 2-3 hours, stir to make sure all sugar is desolved - you should now have strawberry surup. Add water. (you can serve this as a non-alcoholic drink, or continue to make Agua Frescatini.)

1.5 oz Vodka
.5 oz tripple sec (or grand marnier)
6 oz agua fresca
1 fresh lime
1 fresh strawberry

In shaker add ice, vodka, tripple sec, agua fresca & lime. Shake and pour into martini glass. Cut fresh strawberry and fan out, place on side of glass for garnish.
