Strawberry Syrup

5 ounces frozen strawberries

1 cup sugar

1 cup water


1 & 1⁄2 ounces Johnnie Walker Black Label

1 & 1⁄2 ounces strawberry syrup

1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 ounces soda water

Whipped cream, for garnish

Quartered or halved strawberry, for garnish


1. Strawberry syrup: Combine ingredients in a small pot over medium-high heat. Stir to dissolve sugar and bring to a simmer. Press on berries with a fork to release juices. Simmer for 7–10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool, then strain syrup, pressing on the strawberries to release all the juices.

2. Cocktail: In a cocktail shaker, combine Johnnie Walker Black Label, strawberry syrup, vanilla extract, and ice. Shake well. Strain into a coupe glass. Top with soda water. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and a cut strawberry.
