Strawberry Smash



Mom has had a hard week. Having a friend pass away, my son moving to another state, and some health issues, makes for the need for a break. Enter Strawberry smash. Just enough citrus, fruit, and rum to make me close my eyes and feel like I am on vacation. Just what Mom needs right now. TGIF! 

Strawberry Smash

1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 Strawberries
1 cup ice
1 ounce simple syrup (recipe below)
Simple Syrup:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar

Boil 1 cup water, add sugar and stir until dissolved. Store in a jar in the refrigerator.

Hull your strawberries, by taking out the core and the stem. A straw works best for this. 
Add Strawberries, Simple Syrup, Lemon juice to a blender. Blend until fully blended. Pour into your shaker and fill shaker with ice. Shake until frost forms on your shaker. Pour into glass and add desired amount of ice. Garnish with a strawberry.
