The CBC (Crush Breast Cancer)

Recipe courtesy Jan Russell, craftologist, Lucy Restaurant & Bar at Bardessono Yountville, California.

Homemade strawberry-thyme syrup from the bar’s own garden gives the CBC cocktail its pink hue, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Sisters 5/K Run/Walk to Crush Breast Cancer.


1½ ounces Chopin Vodka
½ ounce Green Chartreuse
¾ ounce strawberry and lemon thyme syrup*
½ ounce pineapple gum
½ ounce lemon juice
½ strawberry, for garnish
Strawberry and Lemon Thyme Syrup:
½ cup sugar
2 baskets of strawberries, washed and stems removed
8–10 sprigs thyme, washed



Combine vodka, Chartreuse, syrup, pineapple gum and lemon juice in a shaker tin filled with ice. Shake all ingredients and double strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with the strawberry.

Strawberry and Lemon Thyme Syrup:

Boil ½ cup water in a saucepot. Add sugar and thyme, allowing thyme to steep and sugar to dissolve, forming a syrup. Remove from heat and allow syrup to cool. Remove thyme sprigs. Transfer to a blender, add strawberries and purée. Recipe yields approximately 1 cup syrup.
