In this economy, everyone can use a stiff drink.

1 oz. flavored berry vodka (we recommend Ciroc Vodka Red Berry)
1 oz blue curaçao (DeKuyper Blue Curacao)
1/4 cherry liqueur (Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur)
1 oz soft whipped cream flavored with strawberry or pomegranate puree.

In a mixing glass filled with ice, stir the first three ingredients, then strain into a flute glass. Use the bowl of a bar spoon to pour the lightly whipped berry-flavored cream. Garnish with half a strawberry on the rim.
