About this Cocktail

Adapted from James Johnson's recipe from this here site (, converting his metric measures to imperial with a few slight adjustments. His creation is absolutely delicious and I will not even dare to claim that I've improved upon it. And I too look forward to trying it with a bacon infused bourbon!

  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • 1/4 oz Creme de Cacao
  • 1 med or 2 small Strawberries, cut up
  • 3/4 oz Fresh Lemon Juice (about half a lemon)
  • 1/4 oz Simple Syrup (2:1)
  • pinch of salt

Place coupe glass in freezer to chill. Put strawberry(ies) in shaker and crush with muddler. Add rest of ingredients plus ice and shake until well chilled. Loosely strain with a Hawthorne strainer into the chilled coupe glass (Do not double strain! You want to allow some of the strawberry bits to get through but not the ice.). If in a fancy mood, garnish with a strawberry. Drink and enjoy.
