Jon Howard, the head bartender at Henley in Nashville, remembers enjoying strawberry shortcake on summer Sundays growing up, and even though he admits most of the ingredients were store-bought, it was always the highlight of the week (and his grandfather’s favorite dessert). His drink mixes Carpano bianco vermouth with strawberry vinegar, sugar, lemon peel and a whole egg, served up and garnished with a strawberry slice.
This recipe originally appeared as part of “9 Boozy Drinks in Bars That Taste Like Childhood All Over Again.”
Add all the ingredients into a shaker starting with the egg, and dry-shake (no ice) vigorously.
Add 5 ice cubes and shake again.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with 3 dehydrated strawberries and a few drops of lemon oil.
