In a shaker, combine the whiskey, purée, lemon juice, vinegar and bitters. Shake with ice and strain over an ice sphere in a bucket or old-fashioned glass. Garnish with the sliced strawberry.

From Brian Barnes, bartender at the San Fernando bar. To make the purée, blend 6 ounces strawberries with 1 ounce hot water until smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan and season to taste with sugar, then heat, stirring until the sugar is melted. Strain before using. This makes a scant ½ cup purée.
