Strawberry Shortcake Cocktail

Strawberry season is here! To celebrate I'm going to be posting a few of my favorite strawberry recipes.

Strawberry Shortcake Cocktail

3/4 cup heavy cream
1 lemon, zested
1 tablespoon honey 
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries 
1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
1 1/2 cups apple juice, cold
1/2 cup dark rum 
1/3 cup sugar 
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs 
1 lemon wedge 
 fresh strawberries, sliced, to garnish
4 daiquiri glasses, put in the freezer (or martini glasses)
 In a bowl, whisk heavy cream, lemon zest and honey until firm peaks. Set aside in the fridge. In a blender, puree fresh and frozen strawberries, apple juice, rum, sugar and lemon juice.  Put the graham crumbs in a plate.  Remove the glasses from the freezer. With the wedge of lemon, moisten the edges of each glass, them dip in the graham crumbs.  Distribute the cocktail in each glasses. Garnish with whipped cream. Garnish with slices of strawberries
