Original Cocktail: Strawberry Hill




This cocktail has an old school version, but I’ve updated it just a touch. When it originally debuted on the Revival Bar + Kitchen menu in 2015, it called for a house made strawberry puree and was topped up with seltzer water. My updated version makes it a bit more on-the-fly friendly for mixing up at home, and replacing the puree with a high quality strawberry jam and adding an extra kick by replacing the seltzer with sparkling rosé. 

Strawberry Hill (updated version)

1.5 oz London dry gin (yea, sure, you can use vodka)
2 tsps strawberry jam**
.5 oz fresh lemon juice
2-3 oz sparkling rosé

Shake gin, jam, and lemon juice vigorously for 20-30 seconds, strain into a Collins glass filled with ice (double strain if you don’t want seeds) and top with sparkling wine. Stir gently before serving.

**Depending on your jam, you may need to adjust for sweetness. I use a brand that doesn’t have much sugar so I err on the heavier side.
