BLACK Cup Cocktail

The idea for the BLACK Cup sprang from the Pimm's Cup, and makes for a refreshing drink emphasizing citrus, fresh fruit, and a lovely, complex herbal component.

In a cocktail shaker, muddle 1 strawberry (reserve the other one for garnish) with the simple syrup, then add the Port and lemon juice.

Shake with with ice and strain into a Collins glass filled with ice. Top with club soda and garnish with cucumber wheel and a strawberry.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
