Black Barn

Last fall, New York landed a new farmhouse-inspired eatery, Black Barn, with a seasonal New American menu helmed by chef and co-owner John Doherty (formerly of New York's Waldorf Astoria). Matching the restaurant's farm to fork focus is beverage director Jay Akin's drinks program, which celebrates both local spirits and fresh ingredients. Below, Akin shares a quick strawberry cocktail recipe.

Strawberry Field
Makes 1

1  strawberry
