Ingredients are below
Strawberries: This fruit just screams summer! I love picking fresh ones from our local farms in NH. Sometimes, they are so sweet and delicious; you can omit the sugar.
Basil Leaves: I also pick fresh basil straight from the garden. The natural oils and flavors blend fantastically with the strawberries and give the cocktail and nice floral note.
Organic Cane Sugar: Again, the sugar is optional, depending on the sweetness of your berries.
Fresh Lime Juice: The lime juice is essential to cut the sweetness from the berries and the sugar if you add it. DO NOT USE PRE-PACKAGED LIME JUICE. THIS WOULD BE A TRAVESTY TO THE COCKTAIL!
Spindrift Real Squeezed Lime: This beverage is lovely because it uses real and natural ingredients with a spiked hint of alcohol. The lime flavor is the perfect complement to the other ingredients. It also adds that bubbling sparkle.
Because I combine every day with athletics and adventure, I decided to bring this cocktail to my kayak. I paddled around in our swimming pond while sipping and enjoying the sun and water.
I sipped and paddled for hours and was quite content.
Try making this cocktail for any summer gathering or bash, or simply indulge and make it for yourself. It can travel with you anywhere and will bring you that extra pop and sparkling sweet joy.
