Last Updated on July 25, 2022 by Leah Hall

One of the best parts of spring is the fresh strawberries that start appearing in the stores and markets.   We found a nice flat of fresh strawberries and put our mind to finding some new ways to enjoy the strawberries.  A classic way to enjoy fruit is in a cocktail, and fresh strawberries can make a mean punch when paired up with a nice whiskey or bourbon.



I started with one of my personal favorite bottles of whiskey, Cut Spike’s 2 Year aged Single Malt Whiskey, a locally distilled whiskey that has incredible smoothness and flavor, and paired it with a a home made black pepper and strawberry syrup as the base for my punch. The strawberry and pepper syrup makes this drink sweet with a bite, the black pepper a bold counter to the sweet strawberry.
