The Bloomingdale cocktail


wpid 2011 03 26 18 32 17 464   The Bloomingdale cocktail

Delicious, slightly sweet, berry and lime cocktail:

Two parts vodka, muddled with one ripe strawberry
1 part st germain elder flower liqueur
Dash of cassis / blackcurrant liqueur.. Chambord is a good substitute
Top with equal parts simply limeade and soda water

Feel free to play with the ratios, or use tonic instead of soda water for a less sweet mix, or fresh lime juice /mineral water/and simple syrup for more control over the sweetness.
