  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup

  • ginger beer
204 cal


Muddle one whole strawberry together with the lemon juice in a shaker. Add the bourbon, simple syrup, and bitters. Fill with ice and shake until the outside of the shaker is nice and frosty. Fill your drinking glass with ice and double-strain the shaker contents into the glass, then fill the remainder of the glass with ginger beer. Stir gently and serve.

For style points, garnish with a slice of strawberry and a lemon wheel.
