#DOTW: Summer Solstice

This cocktail is a very elegant one, and at the same time, it’s refreshing and delicious. I personally can’t get enough of it. Make sure you use fresh lemon juice when preparing this cocktail, it makes a huge difference! It’s the kind of drink you should enjoy with company on your deck, or front porch, or even a dinner party!



What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Rémy Martin 1738 (or quality cocktail of your choice)
  • 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz strawberry syrup
  • 2 oz champagne or sparkling wine

Combine Rémy Martin 1738, lemon juice and strawberry syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to chill, then pour into a Martini glass. Top off with champagne.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
