1 1⁄2 oz Light rum
1⁄2 oz Simple syrup (1:1)
1 T Strawberry preserves

Shake, double strain, chilled coupe, no garnish.


Fruit preserves are 1) a great way to emphasize familiar, approachable flavors for cocktail novices; 2) highly concentrated, textured, balanced by acidity, and cheaper than liqueurs or syrups. This format works equally well with other fruit preserves; try orange marmalade or apricot.
