1/2 jigger Port (1 1/2 oz Ramos Pinto Ruby)
1 spoon Simple Syrup (1/8 oz homemade Gomme Syrup)
Muddle strawberries, add rest of ingredients and ice, and shake. Double strain into a cocktail glass. I added a lemon twist to the recipe.
The desire for a nightcap rolled around on Tuesday evening, and Boothby's 1934 edition of World Drinks And How To Mix Them offered up the Deux Fraises. Since our strawberries seemed a lot larger than what the original volume of spirit could handle (and my guess is that the strawberries of 1934 were much smaller than today's), I needed to adjust the recipe a bit. Given the drink's name, I felt that it would be a sin to reduce the number of strawberries, so instead I doubled the Cognac and port amounts.
