Strawberry Fields Cocktail \\\\ Make The Tipsy Pig's Signature Drink at Home

Make their famed cocktail right at home!
^All images taken by me at The Tipsy Pig the weekend before last. Love that beautiful Strawberry Fields drink.

Though I love me some good wine, I'm not much into hard alcohol and rarely drink the stuff. However, while at The Tipsy Pig (again & again) last weekend and not feelin' the wine vibe, I had to find something new to try. While debating, I took note of what everyone else around me was holding to swill on and figured I should get on board. So I ordered what I now know is The Tipsy Pig's signature drink: Strawberry Fields. Guys, it was so dang good and refreshing that I had to recreate it at home after discussing the ingredients with the bartender. So here's a recreation recipe breakdown for you of this light, refreshing, spirited cocktail. I hope you'll give it a shot! Pun intended.

The Tipsy Pig | Strawberry Fields Cocktail

1 Vodka Shot
1/4 Cup Strawberry Purée
Simple Syrup (1 TBSP Water + 1 TBSP Sugar)
1/2 a Lime
Seltzer Water

Put Vodka in a drinking glass (if doing it authentically, use a Mason Jar!)
Dump Strawberry Purée in after
Add the Ice
Fill rest of the glass with Seltzer Water
Add Simple Syrup 
[ to make Simple Syrup- boil 1 part Water and then add 1 part Sugar. Mix until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat.]
Squeeze Lime In Glass for taste and adorn rim with a single Lime wedge
Stir and sip away!

This recipe sounds so delicious and so refreshing! When I give it a try, I'll definitely try to be authentic and serve it in a mason jar!

I love trying to new drink! This sounds right up my alley as I get tired of wine too!! How refreshing! Hope your week is off to great start gorgeous!

Mmmmm this sounds so good to me right now. I bet I could make it a little more paleo-ish and skip the simple syrup and it would be just as good! Or splurge and have the sweet stuff too. Def will try! Pretty pics!
