Fill a martini glass with ice cubes. While the martini glass is chilling, fill a shaker with ice and add all ingredients except for the strawberry juice. Shake, shake, shake! Dump the ice from the martini glass and strain the mixture into it. Take a spoon, and holding it with the rounded side facing up, push the spoons against the inside of the martini glass above your mixture, and slowly pour the strawberry juice on the spoon. Note: The more slowly you pour, the better the layer! Garnish your cocktail with a cherry and/or a slice of lime. Enjoy!

Consisting of fresh herbs, bell pepper, and citrus, this masterpiece of a martini is prepared using Picasso Spirits’ Grand Limon and Grand L’Orange, with a little help from Bombay Sapphire Gin.
