Whether she’s mixing mojitos in New York or sangria in LA, James Beard-honored mixologist Kim Haasarud (liquid-architecture.com) knows how to wield a muddler and a shaker. Having worked the bars at hot spots all over the country and boasting six books detailing 606 different concoctions, there is no cocktail recipe (or ingredient) that surprises Haasarud—including her very own Strawberry Cobbler.
The Strawberry Cobbler
3 ripe strawberries, hulled
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce Navan vanilla liqueur
1 1/2 ounces vodka or gin
Splash of soda water or Champagne
In a mixing glass, muddle strawberries with simple syrup and lemon juice. Add the vanilla liqueur and vodka, top with ice and shake vigorously. Pour into a tall glass and top with soda water or Champagne. Stir and garnish with a strawberry.
