The Strawberry Nirwana is a wonderful gin drink with Maraschino and muddled berries, a masterpiece created by Dale Degroff (found in his book The Essential Cocktail).
2 Strawberries, 3/4 oz. Lemon Juice, 1-1/2 oz. Gin, 1/4 oz. Maraschino, 1 oz. Triple Syrup (I took Gomme Syrup, which resulted sweet enough),garnish 1 Strawberry
Muddle the strawberries with the lemon juice, add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Double-strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a half strawberry.
