Redhead in Bed

  • TOTAL TIME: 25 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 10 drinks

One of chef Chris Yeo's first jobs was bartending. "But that was many, many, many years ago," he says. So he left it to his bar team to create this vibrant strawberry-and-vodka cocktail topped with a splash of white wine, which is on the menu at Straits Atlanta.

  1. 3 pounds strawberries, hulled and coarsely chopped
  2. 2/3 cup sugar
  3. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons citrus vodka
  4. 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  5. Ice
  6. 1/3 cup chilled Riesling
  1. In a bowl, toss the strawberries with the sugar and let stand, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries release their juices, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a blender, combine half each of the strawberries and their juices, the vodka and lime juice with 1 cup of ice and puree. Pour into a pitcher. Repeat with the remaining strawberries and juices, vodka and lime juice and 1 more cup of ice. Fill 10 collins glasses halfway with ice. Pour the cocktail into the glasses, top each with about 1/2 tablespoon of Riesling and serve.
