I’m flying in at the last second for Food n Flix again. In Food n Flix, those who want to participate watch the selected movie make something delicious inspired by the movie and share! This month, Kimberly at Coffee &Casseroles gave us a broad selection by letting us choose any Tim Burton movie!
I’d already seen a few, had no interest in a few others and was having trouble choosing. I enlisted Hubs and he was interested in seeing Alice in Wonderland.
When I was young, I saw the Disney animated Alice in Wonderland, and a few years ago I read the book, and yeah…pretty odd. I can see why it was right up Tim Burton’s alley.
So we watched Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and…wow… as if that book could have gotten any trippier. It was enjoyable but strange. I quickly decided that whatever I made needed to make something with alcohol. And it needed to be red, because the queen of hearts, obviously.
After I made my homemade strawberry sauce, I wondered if I could use that in place of simple syrup in a Moscow mule and here the Strawberry Moscow Mule was born…and it was delicious! By using frozen strawberries, this was a little taste of summer in the winter!
Strawberry Moscow Mule
Adapted from Spicy Southern Kitchen
1 tablespoon homemade strawberry sauce
1 ½ ounces vodka
½ tablespoon lime juice
Mix together the strawberry sauce, vodka, and lime juice (this will thin out the strawberry sauce, so it blends into the cocktail).
Fill a glass with ice. Pour the vodka mixture into the glass. Top with ginger beer. Stir gently. Serve.
