The Bridget Marquardt “Strawberry Blonde” cocktail recipe
- 1 Organic Lemon
- 1 Ounce Organic Simple Syrup (see recipe below)
- 1 1/2 ounces Organic Vodka
- 1 ounce organic Champagne or Sparkling Wine (Domaine Carneros is a delicious organic sparkling wine produced in Napa, California)
Tools Needed: Juicer, Cocktail Shaker, Cocktail Strainer
To prepare the Organic Simple Syrup : Pour 1 cup of water and 1 cup of Organic Sugar into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and let cool. To store, cover and refrigerate.
To Make the “Strawberry Blonde” Organic Cocktail: Juice the strawberries and lemon together (remember to remove the rind of the lemon first). Pour the juice into a cocktail shaker. Add about 1 cup of ice. Pour in 1 ounce of organic simple syrup and 1 1/2 ounces of organic vodka. Cover and shake for 30 seconds. Strain the cocktail into a pink sugar-rimmed and chilled martini glass (see below). Top off with 1 ounce of organic champagne.
Garnish with an organic lemon wheel.
To create a Pink Sugar-Rimmed Martini Glass: Juice just 1 or 2 strawberries and pour the juice onto a shallow dish. Add enough organic sugar to absorb the juice and still stay “clumpy”. Run the rim of the martini glass in circles around the dish until well coated. Let sit for a few minutes to dry.
Health Benefits: Organic Lemons are natural fat-burners, low calorie, and are wonderful sources of Vitamin C and Limonene (studies of which have shown to have wonderful anti-cancer effects). In addition, Organic Strawberries are amazing antioxidants and loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients.
Organic Choice: Both Strawberries and Lemons are covered with harmful pesticide sprays, chemical fertilizers and fungicides, most of which remain on the fruit even after being washed well. Buying organic is really the only way around the nasty chemicals that harm both you and the earth.
Serving Suggestions: The “Strawberry Blonde” organic cocktail has extra special touches that will definitely impress your guests. Between the pink sugar rimmed glass, the splash of champagne, and delicious flavors, this cocktail is the perfect touch that ensures a delightful celebration.
