A perfectly pink liqueur that made its debut in 2012, Sweet Revenge is known for its support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, when its producers donated a dollar for every bottle purchased to the non-profit Brides Against Breast Cancer.

This sweet little strawberry liqueur is a good addition to any bar. Made with sour mash and natural fruit flavoring, Sweet Revenge is a fun spirit that I can see being used regularly as the strawberry liqueur of choice for those cocktails that call for the flavor (browse Strawberry Cocktails for ideas). You may also want to try it with fresh-squeezed lemonade or straight and chilled as a sipper  It is definitely one of the better options that I have tried for this particular fruit and while it is sweet, it is not overly so and has a natural strawberry flavor. There is a little more information about Sweet Revenge below the recipe.

On to the Strawberry Cure cocktail! This drink was designed for the breast cancer campaign and is an excellent use for the liqueur because it allows the strawberry to shine relatively uninhibited. The liqueur is merely enhanced by lemon and soda and it is an easy drink to mix up for any pink-themed party when something delicately sweet is in order.
