Our very own, Elizabeth and Megan, took a quick trip to Miami last weekend for a ladies getaway. In addition to enjoying the sun, stopping by the Versace mansion, and brunchin’ it up at The Delano on South Beach, e. was inventing delicious concoctions of her own!
While browsing a drink menu, Elizabeth made a few substitutions to the classic Tom Collins and inadvertently made a drink that event the bartenders wanted to make a menu staple. Take a peek at the delicious recipe below, let’s call it.. The Queen E. 🙂
- 1 ½ cups ice
- 2 oz. vodka
- ¾ oz. lime juice
- ½ oz. simple syrup
- Splash of club soda
- Leaves from 2-4 mint springs
- 2 strawberries (add more for garnish!)
Fill a Collins glass with 1 1/2 cups ice, set aside in the freezer. Combine vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Muddle mint and strawberry together, add to cocktail shaker. Add 1 cup ice, cover and shake until chilled. Strain into the chilled Collins glass and top with a splash of soda.
There you have it. Try this recipe yourself or make a big batch for your next dinner party and let us know what you think. Cheers!
