Inspired by spring, this fruity vodka drink by bartending vet  Pamela Wiznitzer combines floral and strawberry flavors.


  • 1 3/4 ounces Ultimat vodka
  • 1/2 ounce pear liqueur (such as Merlet Crème de Poire William)
  • 3/4 ounce hibiscus-strawberry syrup*
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 dashes Bittermens Burlesque bitters
  • 1 egg white
  • Garnish: lemon bitters


  1. Add all of the ingredients into a shaker and dry-shake (without ice).

  2. Fill with ice, shake again, and strain into a coupe glass.

  3. Spritz the top of the drink with lemon bitters in a spray bottle or atomizer.

*Hibiscus-Strawberry Syrup: Bring 8 ounces of water to a boil in a small saucepan and add 3 hibiscus-rosehip teabags. Let steep for 3 to 5 minutes, then remove the teabags. Add 1 cup sugar and stir until it dissolves. Transfer the mixture to a blender and add 8 large strawberries, hulled. Blend until smooth and let stand for 20 minutes. Fine-strain into a container with a lid and let cool completely. If not using immediately, add 1/2 ounce vodka (this will help preserve the syrup) and store in the refrigerator.
