Happy weekend, Lovelies! As you know, I am obsessed with strawberries. I absolutely love them. And paired with basil… oh my! A match made in heaven. This delicious, refreshing cocktail is the best of both of those worlds. I think these cocktails would make a lovely addition to a Mother’s Day celebration or a summer picnic.

for 1 cocktail:

5 large, ripe strawberries, tops removed, sliced + 1 whole berry for garnish

5 large basil leaves, torn into pieces + 1 small sprig for garnish

3 Tablespoons simple syrup

2 oz. vodka (I used Stoli)

ice

2 oz. club soda

Place strawberry slices, basil leaves and simple syrup in a drink shaker glass. Muddle well until it’s the consistency of applesauce. Add a large handful of ice. Place cover on drink shaker and shake well for 90 seconds. Strain into a wide mouth canning jar. Top with the vodka and ice. Stir well. Top with club soda. Garnish glass with a whole strawberry and a sprig of basil.

Cheers!

    What is simple syrup?

      a syrup made from sugar and water. It mixes into cold drinks better than granulated sugar.
