Drink Recipe: Strawberry Ginger Basil Cocktail
I needed a refreshing drink during pool time this afternoon and made this cocktail inspired by the recipe in this week's US Weekly. It's simply: muddled strawberries and basil, strawberry vodka, and topped with Fever Tree Ginger Beer. It was a little sweet for my taste, so next time, I'll use less ginger beer and top it off with club soda.
The recipe in US Weekly is called Grey Goose Paradise Presse -- the cocktail was served at the L.A. Dance Project Gala held earlier this month and uses orange juice, strawberry juice, Grey Goose Le Citron vodka, sugar, club soda, strawberries and basil. (No ginger beer.) The headline touts that Rashida Jones and Natalie Portman "toss back this berry refreshing aperitif."
Yes, berry refreshing!
