For the Strawberry Puree:
2 cups fresh strawberries*

For the Strawberry Sidecar:
2 ounces brandy
1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce triple sec (orange liquoer)
1 ounce strawberry puree

Directions:

For the Strawberry Puree:
Add ingredients to a non-stick saucepan and bring to boil (being sure to stir so the sugar doesn’t burn), reduce heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes (until berries are softening). Then turn the heat off and allow mixture to cool. Carefully, pour into a blender (or food processor) and blend until smooth. Set aside until ready to use.
