When Jillian Vose made a surprise visit to bar 20hundra5 in Stockholm last year, at the very same evening we were guest judges in a cocktail competition there, we were quite excited!
Having previously featured several of Jillian's cocktails in our feed we've been holding on to this one, the Warehouse C, for a while. Because it couldn't be more fitting to post this one than today, on Swedish Midsummer Eve, the strawberry fiesta day of the year.
In the Warehouse C there might be only one single strawberry, but that one alone turns this cocktail into a summery temptation. Combined with orgeat, lime and cinnamon syrup it is almost a tiki drink. Sweet and refreshing at the same time.
1,5 oz bourbon
0,75 oz lemon juice
0,25 oz lime juice
0,25 oz orgeat
0,25 oz cinnamon bark syrup
0,25 oz ginger syrup
1 dash aromatic bitters
Muddle the strawberry in a shaker. Add all the other ingredients and shake with ice then strain into a coupe. No garnish Jillian says, we disobeyed and decorated with a strawberry. It is midsummer after all!
