This vodka cocktail is summertime in a glass, flavoured with plump British strawberries. It is the ultimate summer cocktail and is best enjoyed stretched out on the grass.


Made with fragrant ripe strawberries, fresh thyme, and vodka flavoured with the aromatic fruit feijoa, this cocktail is the essence of summer.

8 strawberries
4 sprigs thyme
80ml Tapatio Anéjo tequila
30 ml fresh lime juice
25ml elderflower cordial
20ml 42 Below feijoa vodka
ice cubes
To garnish:
1 strawberry, halved
2 sprigs thyme



Muddle the strawberries and thyme with the tequila in a cocktail shaker. Alternatively, use the end of
a rolling pin in a larger container to gently pound these ingredients together. Add the lime juice, cordial and vodka, top up with ice and shake for 1 minute. Strain into a jug, then strain a second time into two coupe glasses. Garnish each with half a strawberry on the rim and a thyme sprig curled
up the stem of the glass.
