Drink Recipes

A tasty Strawberry and Basil Margarita made with strawberries and tequila
8 Medium strawberries
6 Basil leaves
1 oz Lemon Simple syrup (make using 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp lemon zest, 1 Tbsp lemon juice - heat until sugar has dissolved and then cool. Refrigerate leftovers)
1 Tbsp lime juice
3 oz tequila
1 oz orange liqueur
.5 oz Maraschino liqueur (optional)
Additional strawberries, lime slices and basil leaves for garnish
Use a fresh strawberry to moisten the rim of your glass. Dip the rim in a combination of half salt/half sugar. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberries, basil, lime juice and lemon simple syrup. Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into the rimmed glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish each glass with a strawberry, lime slice and basil leaf.
