Ingredients

  • 1 splash dry vermouth
  • 2 handfuls sweet ripe strawberries, preferably wild ones, hulled
  • 1 sprig fresh mint, leaves picked
  • 2 handfuls ice cubes
  • 150 ml gin or vodka
 

Method

Chill two martini glasses and your cocktail shaker in the freezer for half an hour until really really cold.

Put a few drops of dry vermouth into each glass and swirl it around. Put 3 strawberries into the bottom of each glass – if they're big ones, cut them into pieces first.

Throw the remaining strawberries and the mint into the cold cocktail shaker and squash them with the end of a rolling pin. Add the ice cubes and the gin or vodka, put the top on and shake it about. Strain into your two martini glasses.
