Strawberry Dimple, gin cocktail

What is a dimple? It is a miniature version of a martini served straight up in a shooter glass. This doesn’t mean the drink belongs in the college drinking game category. The name is too silly for that. It works well as an aperitif and as an after dinner drink. This cocktails calls for a strawberry shrub. We used the new artisan gin from Dripping Springs.
