1 1⁄2 oz Blanco tequila
1⁄2 oz Campari
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
3⁄4 oz Strawberry shrub (** Strawberry Peppercorn** Shrub Recipe in Notes)

Shake, strain, up, coupe. No garnish


Strawberry Peppercorn Shrub: Place 1.5 cups (8 oz) of strawberries which have been hulled and quartered, 1/2 cup of white sugar, and 2 tsp of coarsely ground black pepper in a jar. Shake to combine and allow to macerate in fridge for 2 hours to 1 day. Add 1 cup apple cider vinegar and return to fridge for 2 more days. Strain, and allow to sit in fridge for 1 week before using. Will last in fridge for at least a month or two.


I try not to add too many drinks with lots of infusions/syrups etc that are hard to make, but this one is seriously worth the effort of making the shrub. One of the best sours I've ever had. The Shrubs book is also a great addition to a home cocktail library.
