Chill Out with a Refreshing Basil & Strawberry Water…With or Without Vodka.

I’m always looking for ways to get more water inside of me. Right now, I have so much basil in my garden that I decided to infuse my water with the basil and some fresh strawberries for a totally refreshing drink on this very hot summer day!

8 fresh strawberries
10 fresh basil leaves
8 cups cold water (or use half water and half seltzer)

Pinch basil to release the flavor. Then, put the strawberries and basil in a pitcher. Muddle the berries and basil with the back spoon.

Add water and chill in the fridge for a few hours.

*Turn it into a Cocktail:
Pour a glass of your strawberry basil water into a tumbler.

 ounces vodka or gin
1 tbsp honey
1/2 lime juiced

Top off the glass with club soda.
