Recently the folks at Stoli sent me a bottle of vodka plus a few recipes to try. I went straight for the Stoli Accomplice because the strawberries were calling me, but in all truthiness, I used Grey Goose because that's what I had open.(Don't sweat Stoli folks, your vodka will get drunk, trust me!)
It goes down nice and easy and looks festive to boot. Would be perfect to serve on New Year's Eve. Especially to the girrrlz.
Muddle 3 strawberries (in your shaker)
1 ounce simple syrup or rock candy syrup (I used agave nectar)
2 ounces sweet sweet vodka, nectar of the gods
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
Shake ingredients and strain into sugar-rimmed martini glass. Top with champagne.
Notes: I have one of these muddlers and it's awesome. You can buy simple syrup or rock candy syrup at any well-stocked liquor store like BevMo if you don't want to make it yourself. The strawbs can muck up your shaker so just shake-shake-shake that mofo to get all the cocktail out. Prosecco would be lovely (and a more budget-conscious choice) instead of champagne.
