Ah, the things one does on a random Saturday in Nor Cal.
Like picking strawberries. Cause, you know, they're there. And you have awesome friends (Mr. & Mrs. Timko) that know these things!
Once all the berries you could possibly use in 2 days are picked, it's time to get to it.
And then realize you picked waaaaaaay too many berries (the photo below is 1/2 the amount...) Dear, dear.
Well, where's the rum?
Do any of you remember the old mariner's rhyme: "Red in the morning, sailors take warning - Red at night, sailors' delight" ?
Well, I do. And it happened to inspire this beverage.
Chop up your strawberries.
Toss them into a food processor, or blitz with a stick blender.
Go over to Joy the Baker's blog and make her ginger syrup for ginger ale. It's ok. I'll wait.
Now. In your most sea-faring pint glass, layer in 3 tbsp of ginger syrup, 2 tbsp blitzed berries, and 1 1/2 oz of dark island rum.
Add club soda and garnish with a strawberry.
Chortle and yar, matey! It's a pink & stormy for me!
