Strawberry Basil Margarita

This Strawberry Basil Margarita was inspired by the need for something fun and refreshing this winter. We have had so much rain lately that I just needed a reminder that warmer days were coming. We have been packing for our big move and I just needed a little libation as a reward. Made with fresh strawberries, basil and tequila, this is one refreshing cocktail.

Author:
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 8 medium strawberries, washed & stems removed
  • 3 medium basil leaves
  • 2 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz Tequila
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • ice
  • 2 small basil leaves and 2 strawberries for garnish
Instructions
  1. Cut strawberries in half and muddle in a martini shaker.
  2. Add remaining ingredients (except the garnish) into shaker with ice and shake well.
  3. Pour ice in 2 glasses.
  4. Pour shaker ingredients over ice
  5. Garnish with a strawberry and basil leaf.

The muddler can be used in glasses or in the shaker. If you do not have one and like fruity drinks, I would suggest this one. They are really nice to have on hand and work better than a spoon. Luckily, I had not packed my muddler yet although I did pack my margarita glasses. Luckily I had these tall highball tumbler glasses, still remaining in my cupboard.

 

The best muddler for making drinks
