Summer Strawberry Basil Cocktail

Ingredients:
1 pint strawberries, sliced
½ cup sugar
2 ounce lemon juice
8 basil leaves
6 ounce gin
club soda

Directions: 

  1. In a closed container add the strawberries and sugar and allow to sit for at least 20 minutes or until there’s liquid.
  2. In a blender add the strawberry mixture with the lemon juice and blend smooth. Strain into a jar. I have a Vitamix and a special container for it called the Aer, that I ended up using.
  3. Muddle the basil leaves.
  4. Add ice, gin and soda.
  5. Garnish with extra strawberries and/or basil.

This is a stealthy strong drink so sip responsibly!
