Sweet, refreshing, and just enough “spike” to hit the spot. The Rakomelo Strawberry Lemonade is my all-time favorite summer cocktail.
In the summer, our backyard patio became our go-to spot for refreshing cocktails. A favorite cocktail among the family, super refreshing with enough sweetness and tartness and so easy to make.
And just like with any fruit, make sure it's in season.
Yield: serves 1
- 2 oz Mastrogiannis Rakomelo
- 3-4 Strawberries
- 1/2 oz Simple Syrup (you can add up to 1 oz for a sweeter option)
- 1 oz Lemon juice (usually a half large lemon)
- In a cocktail shaker add the Rakomelo, lemon juice, strawberries and simple syrup. Muddle lightly. Fill shaker with ice and shake hard for 10-15 seconds. Fill directly into a glass, garnish with a strawberry, and optional if you want additional fizz, top with a little lemon flavored sparking water.
