  • Jigger or small measuring cup
  • Citrus juicer
  • Muddler
  • Copper mug


  • 2 strawberries hulled and sliced, plus additional for garnish, optional
  • 0.5 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 8-10 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • Ice
  • 6 ounces chilled ginger beer
  • Fresh mint sprig for garnish


  • Add the strawberries and lime juice to a copper mug and muddle until the berries break down. Then, add the mint leaves and lightly muddle a few times.
  • Pour in the vodka and add a handful of ice. Stir until chilled.
  • Top with ginger beer and gently stir to combine.
  • Place the mint sprig in the palm of one hand and quickly clap your other hand on top. This releases its oil for a more fragrant drinking experience. Garnish with the mint sprig and an additional strawberry. Enjoy!



  • Don't overwork the mint or it could turn bitter. Just a few twist should do for muddling.
  • If you don't have a muddler, a wooden spoon will take care of the job.
  • When sorting through limes at the store, pick those that have some give when you press them. Hard limes are a sign that they're dried out.
  • Before juicing the lime, firmly roll it under the palm of your hand on the countertop several times to release the juice.
