  • 2 oz. fresh strawberry juice
  • 1 oz. lemon simple syrup
  • 1 box fresh ripe strawberries
  • 1 cup organic sugar cane
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 lemons
  • 1/2 box blueberries for garnish: Dried Blueberry Powder (see recipe below)
  • 2 oz. VeeV Acai Spirit
  • 1 oz. Bossa Nova Acai juice
  • Starfruit
  • ARGENTO FINO (edible silver) Sprinkles

To Make Strawberry Juice:
Wash strawberries well. Remove greens and any white inside the strawberry. Use a blender or juicer to extract strawberry juice. Strain to removes seeds if using a blender. Tip: A small box of strawberries yields 1 cup of juice.

To Make Lemon Sugar Syrup:
In a small pot, add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice. Bring to a boil and let simmer for a few minutes. The result should be sweet and lemony tart.

To Make Dried Blueberries:
Using a dehydrator, place the fresh blueberries on the rack, let dry until hard and crisp – approximately 1 ½ days. Put in a small processor and pulse until a fine powder forms. Pour the powdered blueberries onto a plate.

To Create The Drink:
Combine all liquid ingredients in a chilled shaker. Take the cocktail glass and lightly rim the glass with a wedge of lemon. Invert the moistened rim onto the plate of blueberry powder to rim the edge of the glass. Add ice to your tumbler, shake, and strain into the chilled 6 oz cocktail glass.

To Garnish The Drink:
Slice the Starfruit and make a slit in one of the slice so it will sit firmly on the cocktail glass. Shake the ARGENTO FINO (edible silver) sprinkles onto the Starfruit and the cocktail. Serve immediately.
