Makes 1 drink
3-4 medium strawberries, hulled
1 1/2 teaspoons organic cane sugar
2 ounces (1/4 cup) blood orange juice (from 1 medium blood orange)
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) meyer lemon juice (or 1/2 ounce regular lemon juice)
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lime juice
1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) white rum
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) dark rum
ice
about 2 ounces sparkling water
strawberry and blood orange slices, for garnish
Place the strawberries and sugar in a jar, measuring cup, or cocktail shaker and muddle until the berries are broken down and the sugar is dissolved. Add the citrus juices, then strain the whole thing through a mesh sieve, pressing on the pulp to extract the juices. Discard the pulp.
Add the rums to the strained juice, then pour into a pint glass filled with ice. Top off with sparking water, garnish with strawberry and blood orange slices, and enjoy.
