This sweet-tart strawberry cocktail is François Vera’s homage to his grandfather Pablo Vera, who owned a bar in São Paulo. “He had many regulars who would order the Pablo’s Special, a simple blend of berries, sugar, lime and a spirit of their choice,” Vera says. “I was only 12 years old at that time, and yes, I had the opportunity to try it once or twice.” Slideshow: Summer Fruit Cocktails

How to Make It

Step

In a blender, puree the strawberries and sugar. Blend in all of the remaining ingredients except ice, the soda and garnishes. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Strain into a pitcher, stir, then pour the drink into ice-filled collins glasses. Stir in 2 ounces of soda for each and garnish.
