Strawberry Blond Cocktail – Specialty Cocktail Tuesday

On December 18, 2012

This Specialty Cocktail Tuesday concoction was named by Bridget Marquardt herself as the Strawberry Blond. Organic Fit Bar has created an organic cocktail designed after her favorite combination of lemons, strawberries, vodka and, of course, pink!

Strawberry Blond Organic Cocktail Recipe

  • 1 Organic Lemon
  • 6 Organic Strawberries
  • 1 Ounce Organic Simple Syrup (see recipe below)
  • 1 1/2 ounces Organic Vodka
  • 1 ounce organic Champagne or Sparkling Wine (Domaine Carneros is a delicious organic sparkling wine produced in Napa, California)

Tools Needed: Juicer, Cocktail Shaker, Cocktail Strainer

To prepare the Organic Simple Syrup: Pour 1 cup of water and 1 cup of Organic Sugar into a sauce pan.  Bring to a boil, stirring continuously.  Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and let cool.  To store, cover and refrigerate.

To create a Pink Sugar-Rimmed Martini Glass: Juice just 1 or 2 strawberries and pour the juice onto a shallow dish.  Add enough organic sugar to absorb the juice and still stay “clumpy”.  Run the rim of the martini glass in circles around the dish until well coated.  Let sit for a few minutes to dry.

To Make the “Strawberry Blond” Organic Cocktail: Juice the strawberries and lemon together (remember to remove the rind of the lemon first).  Pour the juice into a cocktail shaker.  Add about 1 cup of ice.  Pour in 1 ounce of organic simple syrup and 1 1/2 ounces of organic vodka.  Cover and shake for 30 seconds.  Strain the cocktail into a pink sugar-rimmed and chilled martini glass.  Top off with 1 ounce of organic champagne.

Garnish with an organic lemon wheel.  Enjoy!
