Summer Friday Cocktail - Paradise Point Cooler

Absolutely the most perfect early summer libation, the Paradise Point Cooler is loaded with yummy fresh strawberries and 100% refreshing! 

We are working (drinking!) our way through our new "Beach Cocktails" recipe book from Coastal Living Magazine,  and here's our first adapted summer drink recipe for the season!

Here's what you need for 1 drink:

  • 3 fresh strawberries, stems removed 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons gin (3 oz.) - (We are big fans of our local Half Moon Bay, Harvard Ave. Gin)
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 oz.) St. Germain Liqueur
  • 1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Club Soda
  • Ice Cubes
  • Garnishes of fresh strawberries and lime slices

1. Muddle the strawberries in the bottom of a cocktail shaker with a muddler or a wooden spoon
2. Fill cocktail shaker with ice; add gin, St. Germain and lime juice. Then shake it all together vigorously.  Pour into an ice-filled rocks glass and top off with the club soda for sparkle!  
3. Garnish with lime slices and strawberries.  (I love our large round ice-cube molds for these summer drinks -)

Enjoy!  Be careful, I promise that you will want more than one.....
