Recipe: Strawberry Basil Lemonade Cocktail

If you're looking for a cool refreshing drink, I've got just the thing for you - Strawberry Basil Lemonade with Tequila!

I kind of just mixed all these things together the other day into a cocktail and it turned out pretty delicious!

Fresh Strawberries
Fresh Basil

Step 1: Slice up the strawberries into small pieces.

Then place the basil in the bottom of your glass and muddle it. I don't have a muddler so don't fret if you don't have one either, just kinda mash them up so you can get the flavors out of them.

Step 2: Place the strawberries in the cup with the muddled basil. Add a shot of tequila (or your liquor of choice. Or no liquor if you want - it'll still taste great!)

Step 3: Add the lemonade. I used a concentrate so I had to add some water to dilute mine, but basically just mix it to taste.

Step 4: Add ice, stir, and enjoy!

Important note: Don't make this more than a couple hours before you're going to enjoy it, otherwise the basil will start to brown.

This week we're all about basil! If you want to check out our basil inspiration board you can see it here. Also, we had a recipe on delicious caprese skewers that I posted here Pin It
