When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Strawberry Basil Lemonade

It’s Friday Y’all! In celebration of a beautiful Friday afternoon in YEG I beg you all, make a Strawberry Basil Lemonade, find a ray of sun, and relax like it’s your job!

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

This is a quickie but a goodie my friends so don’t blink or you’ll miss it!

Here’s what you need (makes one serving):

  • 1C Lemonade (or half lemonade half soda if you please)
  • 2-3 Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
  • 4-5 Basil Leaves (Mint would also be lovely)
  • 1-however much you want, I’m not here to judge you ounces of Vodka (or Gin)
  • Muddler, or something to smash things up with

OK, now it’s time for the exciting part…

Muddle/smash up the strawberries and basil (if the strawberries are frozen just let them thaw a little) in your glass, add your vodka and lemonade/soda mixture. Consume and repeat!
