  • 3/4 ounce pineapple reduction, recipe follows
  • 3/4 ounce strawberry pickling liquid, recipe follows
  • 3/4 ounce ginger sake
  • Soda water, for topping
  • 5 pickled strawberries, recipe follows
  • Pickled Strawberries:
  • 17 ounces orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
  • 12 ounces rice vinegar
  • 2 ounces fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces strawberry juice
  • 1 pound strawberries, cleaned and hulled

Directions

In a cocktail shaker glass filled with ice, combine the vodka, pineapple reduction, pickling liquid, ginger sake and 4 pickled strawberries. Shake, then pour into a collins glass and top with soda. Garnish with 1 sliced pickled strawberry and serve.

Pickled Strawberries:

Combine the liqueur, vinegar, lemon juice and strawberry juice in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. In a glass jar or resealable container, add the strawberries and enough pickling liquid to cover the strawberries completely. Let them pickle in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes or overnight.

Pineapple Reduction:

In a medium-size saucepan on medium heat, bring the pineapple juice to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and cook until a golden syrup develops. Strain through a fine sieve; cool and transfer to a reusable bottle.
