Prep Time
Cook Time
cocktail (plus about 3 cups of strawberry syrup)
Total time: 0 minutes
  • Strawberry Syrup
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • Cocktail
  • Ice
  • 1½ ounces gin
  • ¾ ounce strawberry syrup 
  • ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces Prosecco or sparkling rosé
  1. Make the strawberry syrup: In a medium bowl, add the strawberries. Using a potato masher or your hands, mash the strawberries until they lose their shape and their texture is very loose. Add the water and sugar, stir to combine, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next day, strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve and into an airtight container.
  2. Make the cocktail: In a mixing glass or cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the gin, strawberry syrup and lemon juice. Cover and shake vigorously for 15 seconds, then strain into a ice-filled highball glass. Top with Prosecco and serve immediately.
