Method

  1. Step 1

    To make strawberry and vanilla syrup, place sugar and 1/2 cup (125ml) water in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves (do not boil). Add the strawberry and simmer for 5 mins or until strawberry softens, pressing the strawberry to release its juice. Add the vanilla and set aside to cool completely. Strain strawberry mixture through a fine sieve into an airtight container. Discard solids. (Alternatively, leave vanilla in the syrup for a more intense flavour).
  2. Step 2

    Place the vodka, lime juice and 20ml strawberry and vanilla syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes and shake until chilled.
  3. Step 3

    Place cucumber and more ice cubes in a white wine glass. Strain the vodka mixture over ice in glass. Top with soda water and decorate with mint.
