  •      1 thin slice of strawberry for garnish
  •          1 pinch kosher salt
  •          3/4 cup soda water

                                                                     
Directions:

  2.   Muddle ingredients with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon until sugar dissolves.
  3.  Add ice cubes and soda water and stir until chilled.
  4.  Strain into a 12-oz. glass filled with ice cubes and garnish with a strawberry slice.
