About this Cocktail

For a call for Prince (the musician) drinks, I was inspired by the song Christopher Tracy's Parade. Christopher Tracy was Prince's character in the 1986 movie Under the Cherry Moon, and the song stood out to me as rather quirky as I would listen to the movie's soundtrack on cassette back in the day. In the lyrics below, the song mentions strawberry lemonade, but in a surreal way: as what God would deliver from the Heavens to stop the parade.

  • 2 oz London Dry Gin
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz Orgeat
  • 1/2 oz Honey Syrup
  • 2 oz Cold Water
  • 2 dash Peychaud's Bitters
  • 1 large (or 2 medium) Strawberry

Muddle the strawberry in the orgeat and honey syrup, add the rest of the ingredients, shake with ice, and double strain into a Collins glass. Fill with ice and garnish with a lemon wheel.
