League of Legends: Aurelion Sol

Aurelion Sol Cocktail
Have you ever tried to drink a star? Give it a try with this strawberry gin and tonic tribute to League of Legends newest champion, Aurelion Sol, the star forging space dragon. Cut the strawberries in half, and place strawberries and mint in a shaker. Muddle (crush) until the strawberries have been sufficiently pulverized and the oil of the mint has been released. Add simple syrup, you may need to add a bit more if your strawberries are not very ripe or sweet, lime juice, gin and ice. Shake until very cold and strain into a highball glass over ice--we recommend adding to the star effect by making a glowing ice ball, see instructions below. Add tonic water and turn on the black light to watch this drink light up with glowing, cosmic shades of white, blue and pink!

Ingredients:
2 large strawberries
3 mint leaves
Juice from 1 lime wedge
¼ oz simple syrup
1 oz gin*
3 oz tonic
Black light (we use this one)
* We suggest Hendricks gin, but if you use another brand, you may want to muddle a slice of cucumber along with your strawberries and mint


Make a glowing ice ball:
Fill a spherical ice mold (we really liked this one) with tonic water and freeze for at least 12 hours. The tonic water will form a sphere that will slowly add more tonic to your drink as it melts--and it will glow a stunning pale blue under a black light.
