Preparation: Muddle 2 strawberries in mixing glass. Add the remaining ingredients, except the soda, and shake in an ice-filled cocktail shaker for 15 seconds. Strain into a Collins glass over ice. Top with soda. Garnish with a strawberry.
This is a recipe from an article in the Wall Street Journal about summer drinks and is attributed to the Darby in New York. The article describes the drink as follows:
This drink may appear overly sweet – it has strawberries, after all – but it has the heart of a Manhattan (bourbon, sweet vermouth and bitters) so it’s not the saccharine concoction you might expect.
Preparation: Combine ingredients into a mixing glass. Stir and strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
This is a somewhat simplified version of a recipe developed by Xavier Herit of Daniel in New York City and is found in his book Cocktails & Amuse Bouches For Her & For Him. The cocktail is a Herit’s variation on a classic Negroni and replaces the gin with cognac and the Campari with Montenegro. The recipe in the book calls for creating a large, hollow ice ball that is placed in a rocks glass and the drink is then strained into the ice ball. I’m not sure how you drink it from that point but it looks really cool!
