You're having people over for a dinner party.
Your focus should be spending time with your guests,
not playing bartender.
We're gonna show you a great drink you can make
up to a day in advance.
Keep it in the fridge,
and it'll be a crowd pleaser for sure.
We'll start with one and a half ounces Bombay Sapphire Gin.
Add in three quarter ounce of the Martini Bitter,
three quarter ounce of a simple strawberry syrup.
We just took classic strawberry jam,
added a little hot water to thin it out,
and the sweetness from the strawberries
are gonna play perfectly with the botanicals in the gin.
Add ice, give it just a quick stir,
strain it over fresh ice,
and some club soda for ether of essence.
Garnish with a strawberry and some fresh herbs.
I like thyme, it compliments the gin perfectly.
And you have a wonderful,
gorgeous, festive drink.
