Strawberry Basil Lemonade (makes 2 large drinks)

6 oz Strawberry Rum
Juice of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lime
2 TB Agave
4-6 Thai Basil leaves, plus more for garnish

Muddle basil with some ice in a cocktail shaker. Add the remainder of the ingredients, and more ice, shake vigorously. Serve in a tall glass over ice, and add more basil to garnish.

This drink is the epitome of summer. We loved it, and hope you will too! Another great use for that Strawberry Rum.

Cheers!

  1. Looks so cool and delicious!

  2. This looks really great and refreshing!!

  3. Hi Alicia,
    I have let my strawberry rum sit and infuse all this time, and today I finally strained out the berries and the rum is pretty tasty. The strawberries actually are too. I think I’m going to freeze them and make strawberry milkshakes with them down the road. These were the ones where I used 1/3 of the berries that were macerated with sugar first. So I think it came out pretty well for my first infusion. I think I’m going with your chocolate raspberry next! :) Meg

  4. Gorgeous! I can’t help thinking that you are doing a better job with the summer cocktails than I am. Although I did make these recently: http://www.capitolhillseattle.com/2012/07/29/capitol-hill-cooks-bloody-mary-popsicles-inspired-by-14th-and-union :)

  5. I was lucky enough to score a quart of gorgeous organic local strawberries today, so needless to say I bought rum ;-) My question, as a total newbie to this – do you keep the infusion refrigerated while it does its thing, or does it sit on the counter?
