An ideal summer afternoon tipple. I think it tastes better in a mason jar.
- 2 large ripe strawberries, washed, hulled and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 3 leaves fresh mint
- 2 oz. moonshine or white whiskey, like Original Moonshine
- 1/2 oz. lemon juice
- Sprig of mint, for garnish
Combine cut strawberries, sugar, mint leaves in a cocktail shaker. Stir and let stand until strawberries are macerated, up to 10 minutes. Add moonshine, lemon juice, and ice to fill the shaker, and shake vigorously for an additional minute. Pour out contents into mason jars, adding more ice as needed. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
