Strawberry Basil Martini
 
 
Strawberries + Basil = YUMMMM
Ingredients
  • 1½ oz. vodka
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 3 strawberries*
  • 8-10 basil leaves
  • 1 oz. club soda
  • splash simple syrup (about ½ oz. depending on your sweetness preference)
Instructions
  1. Combine strawberries and basil in a cocktail shaker and muddle. Add vodka, lemon juice, club soda and splash of simple syrup if the strawberries aren't sweet enough for your liking. Add ice and shake well. Strain in a chilled martini glass. Garnish as desired.
I take a box of strawberries from the store, cut them all up and put them in a bowl with some sugar, a tablespoon or two, and let them sit and get juicy. Then when making the cocktail, just take a couple spoonfuls of the strawberries and some of that good sugary strawberry juice and use that to start your drink with.
