Strawberry Brandy Smash
Use the back of a wooden spoon to muddle.
- 2 strawberries, leaves removed and quartered
- 1 tsp sugar
- 4 mint leaves
- 2 ounces brandy
- 1 to 2 tbsp sparkling water
In a flat-bottomed glass, muddle the strawberries, sugar and mint. Muddle until a paste forms and the strawberries are well smashed.
In a shaker, add ice and brandy. Shake until chilled.
Add ice to the serving glass with the muddled strawberries. Pour the brandy over the ice and top with sparkling water and a mint sprig. Serve immediately.
