Strawberry Mint Sipper

One of our signature cocktails from the 2015 Creole Tomato Festival in the French Market!  Locally Preserved Strawberry Mint Syrup is the perfect counterpoint to Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka in this refreshing, light, and ice-cold summertime sipper built for long, lazy afternoons spent swaying in a hammock or relaxing at a festival. 

1.5 ozs. Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka

.25 oz. Locally Preserved Strawberry Mint Syrup

.5 oz. fresh lemon juice

2 ozs. club soda

1 slice of strawberry to garnish (optional)

1 mint leaf to garnish (optional) 

Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker filled halfway with ice. Shake gently and strain or pour into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with the strawberry and basil leaf.
