[ Recipe: Strawberry Basil Cocktail ]
strawberry basil cocktail

This refreshing drink combines basil and strawberries with a touch of balsamic sweetness from agave nectar. Eliminate the vodka and you've got a nice "mocktail" for those who don't imbibe. This recipe is for an individual serving, so adjust accordingly for a crowd.

½ pint (8 ounces) strawberries (may use frozen)
¼ cup light agave
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 or 3 fresh basil leaves
1 ½ ounces vodka
½ cup ginger ale

Place the strawberries, agave and lime juice in a blender; pulse until smooth. Push puree through a mesh strainer, if you wish to remove the seeds. Lightly muddle basil leaves in a cocktail glass; top off with ice. Add about 2 tablespoons of the strawberry puree to the glass, followed by the vodka and ginger ale. Stir gently and garnish with additional basil, if desired.
