Strawberry Gin Fizz
Here’s a delicious idea: Fill a Mason jar with June’s best bounty (luscious local strawberries), mix in a couple spoonfuls of sugar and some gin, and then (the hardest part) wait a few days. Add a splash to sparkling wine or tonic, and you’ll have the perfect elixir for warm nights on the back deck. Get this Strawberry Gin Fizz recipe.
