Wouldn't this beautiful cocktail make the perfect ending to a summer day...
I've been making batch after batch of homemade pesto, but I believe I've found another great use for the abundance of basil I have this summer, and it's also the perfect way to use the last bit of this season's strawberries.
Strawberry Basil Bourbon Spritzer
Makes 1 cocktail
1 ½ ounces Bourbon whiskey
½-1 cup strawberries, halved or sliced
6-8 basil leaves, torn, plus for garnish
Place the strawberries and basil in the bottom of a large glass. Muddle with a large spoon and top with the whiskey. Stir to combine and fill the glass with ice cubes. Top with sparkling water then garnish with basil leaves. Cheers!
