Serves 1.

A fun summer drink. It looks innocent but packs a decent punch!

1 oz. fresh strawberries
1 T. powdered sugar
1-2 drops fresh lime juice
3 measures vodka, well iced

Reserve 2-3 strawberries to add later.
Crush the rest in a bowl with the sugar and lime juice. Strain well.
Pour the vodka into an iced martini glass and add the puree and reserved strawberries.

A Note From The Little Lady: The original recipe calls for 1 oz. of fresh strawberries, but upon seeing that, I wasn't sure how to read it. If we were talking weight, I would need slightly over 2 large strawberries (one strawberry weighs 12 grams and there are 28 grams in an ounce). Or, we could look at it that there are 8 oz. in a cup, so we were need 1/8 cup of strawberries. Either way, that's not very many, especially when you are instructed to reserve 2-3 right off the bat.
To make things easier, I would recommend using 2-3 strawberries in the puree and 1-2 strawberries for garnish. But play around with it and do whatever best suits you.
