For the first time this year, I saw signs of the new season at the farmers market: purple-green Spring onions and lush, shiny strawberries. I was so enthralled that I decided to toast the first berries with a timely cocktail.
This drink has a fruity-floral bouquet, with a clean finish from the mint and ginger. It's also not too sweet.
