Strawberry Basil Martini {Recipe}

With our veggie/herb garden in full swing, I’ve been overrun by copious amounts of sweet basil! Good thing, as fresh basil is one of my favorite things in the world! I found a few ripe strawberries hidden in our garden as well and it hit me. It was Friday night after all! Martini time! Please enjoy this Strawberry Basil Martini, but slowly as it really packs a punch!

    Sounds great – I look forward to trying it! Rather than water and sugar, though, I suggest using (and will use myself) simple syrup. Sugar doesn’t like to dissolve in cold liquids.
