Sparkling Strawberry Martini
4large fresh strawberries
3ouncesgood quality vodka
1 ½ouncessimple syrup
1 ½ to 2ouncessparkling wine
additional simple syrup and sugar to rim the glass
To make simple syrup:
In either a small saucepan combine the sugar and water. Bring to just a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and let cool.
Sparkling Strawberry Martini:
On two small plates drizzle a small amount of simple syrup on one plate and a small layer of granulated sugar on another. Dip the rim of the glass into the agave, then press into the sugar. Shake off excess and set aside.
In a martini shaker, add strawberries and muddle well. Press as much juice out of the fruit as possible.
Add simple syrup, vodka and ice. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds.
Double strain into the rimmed martini glass using mesh strainer. Tap the strainer against your hand to shake as much of the martini out of the strawberry pulp left in the strainer.
Slowly pour sparkling wine over the top of the martini to fill the glass.
