Don’t Panic, It’s Organic!

1 ½ oz Prairie Vodka

* To make Strawbery Simple Syrup: Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat; stir until sugar is dissolved. Mix strawberries into saucepan and bring to a boil; boil for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until strawberries are mushy and sauce is thick, about 10 minutes. Strain liquid into a bottle and cool to use, or store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Combine all ingredients in a shaker tin, and shake over ice. Strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice, and garnish with a strawberry.
