Harry's Cocktail of the Week - The Strawberry Smash

It’s strawberry season and Memorial Day Weekend. Time for “The Strawberry Smash”


3 hulled strawberries

2 ounces Plantation

3 Stars white rum 1 ounce

fresh lemon juice

1 ounce simple syrup

1 strawberry 

Muddle 3 hulled strawberries in a cocktail shaker. Add 2 ounces white rum, 1 ounce fresh lemon juice, and 1 ounce simple syrup. Fill with ice, cover, and shake aggressively for about 30 seconds. Fill a highball glass with crushed ice. Strain strawberry mixture into glass. Garnish with a strawberry and a sprig or 2 of mint or basil, and serve with a straw. For a slightly less boozy drink substitute lemon and simple with 4 oz of your favorite lemonade and serve in an iced Pint or Wine Glass. OR to make it more boozy, add a ‘floater’ of Plantation 3 Stars dark rum
