Simple Strawberry Gin

Simple Strawberry Gin
50 ml Thin Gin
15 ml Lime Juice
20 ml Strawberry cocktail Syrup
Sparkling Lemonade
Fresh strawberries with a sprinkling of black pepper.


In a shaker with ice add the Thin Gin, lime juice and strawberry syrup.   Shake and strain into a fresh glass with ice.  Top with Sparkling lemonade. Garnish with freshly sliced peppered strawberries.  


Options:  Replace the lemonade with Champagne or sparkling wine for something a little naughtier.


If you can get your hands on some fresh slices of watermelon and cucumber in season, blend the two together in a blender and stir into your cocktail for an extra hit of summer.
