This week, I've stepped way out of my comfort zone by doing a video showing you how to make this cocktail step-by-step (blunders and all!). I chose to do a strawberry basil martini; sounds delish, right?! I was inspired by all of the pictures I kept seeing on Facebook, of friends out picking ripe summer strawberries, and figured they would be the perfect ingredient to pair with basil, another summer favorite.
Please watch our video, let us know what you think! Please be kind though...I was definitely nervous trying this for the first time.
2 oz. Vodka
3 ripe strawberries
3 basil leaves
1/2 oz. simple syrup
Squeeze of lemon
- In a cocktail shaker, add strawberries, basil, vodka and muddle together releasing all of the flavors.
- Add the simple syrup, lemon, and fill with ice. Close and shake vigorously.
- Pour into a martini glass, shaking well to make sure you get every last drop.
- For some fizz, top with club soda (or even some prosecco)
Hope you enjoy the video and more importantly are inspired to break out your cocktail shaker this weekend!
