    Unlike the previous reviewer, I didn't taste much of the ginger. However, I agree there was a lot of texture to the drink (too much). The only liquid is that produced by the muddling of the berries and the vodka. I would definitely make this again, but I would either muddle until the strawberries were nearly entirely liquid, or blend the solid ingredients in a blender instead of muddling them. I would also add a splash of club soda for fizz.

    Very interesting and dramatic flavor. The ginger was a little radical. There was a lot of solid matter in the drink making it hard to drink, more like a food. I will make it again, maybe cut back on the ginger a bit.
