The farmers market was full of fresh strawberries this past weekend. This cocktail with muddled strawberries paired with Bushmills Irish Honey and gorgeous, warm weather made me one happy girl!
- 1.25 oz Bushmills Irish Honey
- 3/4 oz Aperol
- 1/2 oz Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
- 2 fresh strawberries
- 2 dashes rhubarb bitters
Cut a strawberry into fourths and muddle it in a beaker and add the other ingredients and ice. Stir. Fine strain the cocktail from the mixing glass into the rocks glass over ice and garnish with a strawberry.
