Strawberry Smash

We went to the brand new SOPHIE bar on Lendal Bridge to make this fantastic refreshing cocktail.

  • Fresh strawberries
  • York Gin Roman Fruit
  • Lemon juice
  • Sugar syrup (gomme), ice, basil, soda water
Muddle (crush) the strawberries, gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a highball, finish with ice, basil and top up with soda water.

The Bramble

  • 25ml lemon juice
  • 10ml sugar syrup
  • 20ml Chambord
  • Blackberries, cubed ice, crushed ice
Muddle (crush) a couple of blackberries in a tumbler. Shake gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and cubed ice in a cocktail shaker. Fill the tumbler to the top with crushed ice.
