"Let me drink about it and get back to you" is my primary work week vibe.
This recipe also includes a mock-tail version that is honestly just as good (if not better) than the boozy treat I have for you, today.
“Honestly, every day I prefer my espresso in a martini glass."
Here is the easiest, most refreshing, super versatile: Strawberry Basil Martini Recipe
2 ounces | Strawberry or plain vodka if you basic | Mock-tail: Sub with Strawberry Seltzer
1.5 ounces | St. Germain | Mock-tail: Sub with diet lemonade or I found this Belvior Elderflower Lemonade at Whole Foods that's perfect
3 Strawberries (cut in half)
Handful of Basil
2 Mint leaves + 2 tarragon leafs (optional)
2 Lemon slices + 1/2 lemon squeeze + drop in shaker
2 packets of Stevia
2.5 ounces of water
Optional: Take it up a boozy notch with a Limoncello Strawberry ice cubes instead of the squeezed lemon juice. Just blend water + strawberries + limoncello + add strawberry slice = freeze
Step 1: In your shaker, add your basil, mint, tarragon (optional) 2 lemon slices, squeeze in 1/2 of a lemon and drop that lemon into the shaker, add 2 packets of stevia and 2.5 ounces of water.
Step 2: Muddle those ingredients + then add the strawberries + muddle again + and then add ice (optional: Limoncello ice cubes)
Step 3: Pour in 2.5 ounces of strawberry vodka + 1.5 ounces of St. Germain = Shake | If you are using seltzer, add lemonade only + shake then add the seltzer to your martini glass and strain the contents of your mixer over the seltzer slowly
Step 4: Strain contents into a martini glass aka perfect pour - for a garnish, slice a strawberry- slide it around the rim once dip rim into raw stevia + fold basil leaf in half and insert that leaf into the strawberry slit, add this garnish to the side of the martini rim. | Or you can add the strawberry garnish to the side and place a basil leaf in the martini glass.
And that my friends, is your new favorite drink.
