A part of the impressive cocktail menu at the Ice Plant in St Augustine, Florida, the Psychedelic Fur is a summery strawberry cocktail that makes a great alternative to the overdone daiquiri. Taking advantage of the fruit being in season, the cocktail calls for a quart of fresh strawberries that is used to make a batch of strawberry syrup. The Psychedelic Fur also requires a batch of ginger syrup which includes fresh ginger.

In addition to the strawberries and ginger, this strawberry cocktail recipe calls for Rhum Barbancourt Reserve Special, Fernet Branca and Peychaud's bitters. In terms of tools, one will need a shaker, strainer, cucumber ribbon for garnish and an ice-filled Collins glass to serve it in.

The classic combination of aged rum, Fernet and strawberry and ginger make it a simple go-to summer cocktail.
