Strawberry Gin Fizz

Strawberry Gin Fizz
Remember that Strawberry-Infused Gin that I shared last week?  How about those Strawberry Ice Cubes?  I bet you knew that they were destined to hang out together in a cocktail... for Valentine's Day.  I mean, there was pink... and of course red... but the real giveaway?  It was the hearts.

I almost went sweet.  I actually already had a plan.  There was a Towering Flourless Chocolate Cake on the horizon.  TOWERING!  But oddly enough, I am still sweeted-out from Christmas (and the month or so leading up to it).

So I put that baby on the back-burner.  Just for now.  I know that I need an irresistible flourless chocolate cake in my future.  Especially since it's towering.  Ummm... near future, thankyouverymuch.

Now, if you don't want to make heart-shaped ice cubes, then obviously you can make trusty ol' cubes.  They're just as fun.  Plus, they're bigger.  But if you DO decide to treat yourself to a couple of these lightly fizzy cocktails, do yourself a favor and make the ice cubes!  As they melt down, the pulpy strawberry emerges from the ice.  It's like a bonus.

Plus, it's always good to have food with your cocktails... No?

Keywords: beverage alcohol gin strawberries Valentines Day

Ingredients (2 cocktails)

Combine infused gin, simple syrup, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with a few "regular" ice cubes. Shake vigorously. Strain into glass filled with strawberry ice cubes. Top off with club soda.

If you haven't infused any gin, or don't want to, you could also muddle a couple of strawberry with a few rosemary needles in the bottom of a cocktail strainer before adding the gin and simple syrup. Shake and strain into glass and finish in the same manner.
