Ever since its debut three years ago, Delray’s 3rd and 3rd (561-303-1939) has been on the cutting edge of local cocktail culture. Its innovative drink menu changes with the seasons and makes creative use of the best available ingredients.
General manager Sabrina Milroy was brainstorming behind the bar one day when she added some strawberries to a classic Moscow Mule and liked the way it tasted. “It makes for an interesting variation on the Mule,” she says. “And the fruit lends a refreshing aspect to the drink.” Milroy mixes
- 1/2 oz. strawberry shrub
- 1 1/2 oz. Hangar One Vodka
- 2 oz. Barritts Ginger Beer
To make strawberry shrub, simmer a pint of strawberries with 1 cup white vinegar and ¼ cup sugar for 5-7 minutes.
Dry-shake vodka and shrub without ice. Pour over ice and top with ginger beer. Serve in a copper mug.
