strawberry basil martini

FullSizeRender

This is one of my favorite cocktails probably because it combines two of my favorite ingredients: strawberries and basil. Make this sometime this summer when you’re getting together with friends or when you need something refreshing to sip during a hot day. You will need a strainer , a cocktail shaker , and a muddler (see picture below).
