This all started with me wanting to make simple syrup. And it ended with me creating this cocktail to use the simple syrup in. And those red raspberries? Yeah, I didn’t have any strawberries when it came time to take photos. Regardless, a highly recommended cocktail!
Strawberry Balsamic Spritz
• 1 1/2 oz strawberry balsamic simple syrup
• 1 1/2 oz gin (I used Hendrick’s)
• splash of seltzer
• berries for garnish
Super simple and tough to mess up. Combine the simple syrup and gin in a tumbler, use a swizzle to stir together. If you want a stronger cocktail stop right here. Otherwise, add a splash of seltzer for fizz and toss in a few berries for color and texture. DONE.
